NEW: FIExplore! Study Abroad Planning Scholarship

FIExplore! Study Abroad Planning Scholarships are awarded by the Foundation for International Education in coordination with Klein College Global Opportunities. These $3,000 scholarships target freshman and sophomore students with significant financial need and who would otherwise be unable to, and might not even consider, studying abroad. Students apply for this scholarship in freshman or sophomore year, utilizing the $3,000 for a spring semester study away program in London at a later point in their academic careers. Eligible freshmen and sophomores will be able to apply during the spring 2018 term and will be due by March 15, 2018.
