Edinburgh is one of Europe's most beautiful cities. From the Old Town's medieval castle to the New Town's neoclassical architecture, the city offers a constantly changing perspective. Edinburgh is a city of pubs, cafes and restaurants filled with writers, artists and comedians. In the words of Robert Louis Stevenson, Edinburgh is “a dream in masonry and living rock.”

KEI Travel Grants provide students awards of $500 to $1,000, and are based on a combination of academic merit and financial need.
$500 to $1,000
Students must apply by their program's application deadline.
Students must have a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0 (on a 4.0 scale) and demonstrate financial need, leadership potential and involvement in extracurricular activities. Preference will be given to those who apply early and those applying to study abroad for two or more semesters. To apply for a KEI Travel Grant, students must submit the following: 1.) copy of their school's financial aid award letter; 2.) a 500-word essay outlining how the KEI Travel Grant will make a decisive difference in their ability to study abroad. The essay should also include a description of your academic and extracurricular achievements, and rationale for financial assistance. 3.) If awarded a grant, students must then participate in a mini-internship with KEI and successfully complete the requirements toward the grant.
