Lakers Go Abroad! Scholarship

$2,000 Study Abroad Scholarship for incoming undergraduate Freshmen

More than 100 incoming Freshmen will be selected each year to receive this $2,000 scholarship, which can be used towards a GVSU approved study abroad program anytime during their 4 years at GVSU. Study abroad is the opportunity to study outside of the United States while earning GVSU credit.

To apply, write a compelling essay (200-500 words) about where you would want to study abroad and why. We encourage you to include how studying abroad would impact you on a personal, professional or academic level. The essay will be the primary consideration for awarding the scholarship, so the committee encourages you to put thought and time into it.

Over 100 scholarships awarded per year.
