Fund for Education Abroad - Applicants must be US citizens or permanent residents currently enrolled as undergraduates in US universities/colleges who plan to study abroad for at least four weeks (a minimum of 30 days) between May 2015 and May 2016. Fund for Education Abroad awards are intended to support students planning to participate in high-quality, rigorous education abroad programs in the 2015-2016 academic year or summer 2015. The financial support for these scholarships is provided by generous donors, who are committed to increasing study abroad opportunities for dedicated American students.
