Highlights Understand the history, development and importance of hip-hop in Africa and globally. Go on an excursion to Ghana for three weeks. Experience urban life in two African metropolises. Attend workshops led by major hip-hop artists such as King Mo, Ndongo D, Xeinnix, and Salla Ngary. Do an internship in hip-hop and urban cultural centers.

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 (firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
