Study Abroad Funding Opportunities

Benjamin Gilman Scholarship for Undergraduate Study Abroad

The Benjamin A Gilman Scholarship offers awards for undergraduate study abroad and is open to U.S. undergraduate students who are receiving Federal Pell Grant funding at a two-year or four-year college or university to participate in study abroad programs worldwide. The program aims to diversify the kinds of students who study abroad and the countries and regions where they go by supporting undergraduates who might otherwise not participate due to financial constraints.

Clowes Center Scholarship

Students who design projects which enhance or expand local-global connections are eligible for the Clowes Center Scholarship. While there is no one “right” form that these projects should take, some examples of potential projects include the use of information technology to link UW with communities around the word, artistic projects which bring international insights tolocal settings, or artistic performances that bring global experiences home. Prizes will range between $100-$300.

Global Opportunities (GO!) Scholarship

The Global Opportunities (GO!) scholarship is funded by the Washington State Legislature. This competitive scholarship helps academically promising undergraduate students with significant financial need access international learning opportunities.

WAFLT Student Excel Scholarships

The Washington Association for Language Teaching offers up to six $500.00 scholarships each year to Washington residents taking advanced world language courses at the university level. The award is merit based rather than need based.
