Overall Experience
Not only did I come out of the program with a research project that is now turned into a 150-page honors thesis for my undergrad, I also made life-long friends, and established academic mentorship that I know will help me through my academic and professional career. - Kenyon College View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with SIT Study Abroad: Ghana: Africa in the 21st Century
Ghana's hospitality is unmatched and this made all the difference in my experience. People were really kind and they truly cared about my well-being. I am going to take this type of hospitality and incorporate it into my own life. This is a life lesson that will stay with me for the rest of my life. - St. Edward's University View Entire Review
Among many other things, I believe that my ability to understand others has grown significantly. The many well-rounded experiences have prepared me to work in diverse environments as well as with a diverse group of people. - Colgate University View Entire Review

Guidelines/Requirements:
The SIT Study Abroad scholarship application process has been fully integrated into our online program application. After ticking the scholarship box in the program application, please complete the following steps: 1) Once your scholarship application is started, you will be asked to provide SIT with the name and email address of a financial aid counselor at your home institution, or the general email address of your financial aid office. This is very important as it allows SIT to consider any financial aid that may be available from your home institution when reviewing your scholarship application. 2) Add SIT’s school code (008860) to your FAFSA form. 3) Your scholarship application is complete and ready for review when SIT has your FAFSA and the financial aid information from your home institution. Confirm receipt of all required financial aid information with the SIT Study Abroad Scholarship Office (studyabroad.scholarships@sit.edu or 802.258.3503). 4) If you do not receive an award decision notification from SIT before the billing due date, please know that your scholarship application was not complete.
