Lakers Go Abroad! Scholarship

For new students who are eager to include the high-impact experience of Study Abroad in their time at GVSU, the “Lakers Go Abroad!” Scholarship provides $2000 towards an approved, for-credit program outside the USA, during their 4 year undergraduate career. Applicants are asked to articulate their goals for an ideal study abroad experience in a compelling essay. The essay itself is the primary element in determination of the award, so the committee advises students to put thought and time into it.

Eligibility Information:
*Available only to new incoming Freshman undergraduate applicants
*Scholarship requires full-time enrollment and GVSU must be first institution attending after high school
*Awardees are still eligible for additional study abroad scholarships
*To access scholarships after enrollment, awardee must maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress at Grand Valley
*Scholarship must be used within four years after initial enrollment at GVSU, and may only be used on a GVSU-approved, for-credit study abroad program

Applications submitted after December 31 will not be considered.
