The Alliance for Global Education was formed with the vision of opening study abroad destinations in Asia to an ever-growing and more diverse U.S. undergraduate population. In this vein, we are pleased to offer scholarships to students who attend Alliance programs in China or India and demonstrate financial need. The maximum award amount is $4,500 per student for the fall and spring terms and $2,500 per student for the summer term. Students from non-traditional majors or minority backgrounds are encouraged to apply.
$500 - $4,500
Scholarship applications and supporting materials must be submitted by the same deadline as your Alliance program applications: March 1 for summer programs; April 15 for fall programs; and November 1 for spring programs.
To be eligible for an Alliance scholarship, you must have applied for financial aid through your home school. Students seeking financial aid should also speak with the study abroad and financial aid offices at their home institutions about taking scholarships and federal aid with them while studying overseas.
