This info session provides an overview of study abroad awards available for Spring 2021 and Summer 2021*. Scholarships discussed include the Benjamin A. Gilman Scholarship Program,  Critical Language Scholarship, Freeman-ASIA Award, Fund for Education Abroad, LMU's Study Abroad Financial Assistance Grant, and more.

The Critical Language Scholarship is a fully-funded summer study abroad opportunity for students to learn languages essential to America’s engagement with the world. The summer 2021 program may be virtual, depending on COVID-19 restrictions.

Gilman offers up to $8,000 for U.S. undergraduate students who are receiving Federal Pell Grant funding to participate in study and intern abroad programs worldwide. 

Freeman-ASIA offers up $7,000 for U.S. citizens (or permanent residents) studying at the undergraduate level, who demonstrate financial need to study abroad in East or Southeast Asia. 

Fund for Education Abroad scholarships range from $1,250 – $10,000 and can be applied for programs that run for at least 28 days.

LMU's Study Abroad Financial Assistance Grant supports undergraduate students who have financial need and are participating in LMU and Featured Study Abroad Programs. The award is based on financial need and a project proposal. Grant amounts will vary and are placed directly into your student account to go towards the program fee.
 
LMU undergraduates with financial need (especially Pell Grant recipients) are invited to learn more about these study abroad scholarships, including eligibility requirements and application timelines. 

*Dependent upon COVID-19 restrictions. Most awards allow deferment of funding up to a year.
