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.
Over 100 scholarships awarded per year.
*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
