Freshmen Education Abroad Scholarship
Program Terms: Fall
Program Description:
Freshmen Education Abroad Scholarship
Office of International Programs
Kansas State University

The Freshmen Education Abroad Scholarship was created by the Office of International Programs in order to encourage enrollment in Global Issues & Perspectives courses and the LEAD 502 Global Citizenship course on campus, as well as to encourage participation on a study abroad program, for those who may otherwise not be able to afford this type of experience.


This scholarship is for freshmen who are participating in their first semester at K-State during the term the application is due, and who have 29 or fewer credits on their K-State academic record at the time of application.  Students must be enrolled at K-State full time at the time of application. Preference will be given to students who qualify for Federal Financial Aid.

Selected recipients will be required to:
  • Enroll in, and successfully complete (pass) a Global Issues and Perspectives course** or the LEAD 502 Global Citizenship course.  Although students may apply for the scholarship while enrolled in the fall semester LEAD 502 Leadership for a Globalizing Community course, it is strongly suggested that recipients enroll in the Global Issues and Perspectives course** or LEAD 502 Global Citizenship the semester following the notification of award.
Selection will be made by the OIP Scholarship Committee, and will be based on the following criteria:
  • Response to: "How will your enrollment in a Global Issues and Perspectives course or LEAD 502 Global Citizenship course and a study abroad experience benefit your academic, career and personal goals?" (200 words maximum)
  • Federal Financial Aid eligibility


Up to 10 recipients per year will be awarded $750 to help cover the cost of tuition and fees for enrollment in a Global Issues & Perspectives course
** or the LEAD 502 Global Citizenship course.  An additional $2,000 will be available to those awarded the $750 scholarship, to help fund a study abroad experience on an approved K-State study abroad program.*

How to Apply:

Please click the Apply NOW button at the top on this page. The deadline for 2015 is October 16, 2015.

* The additional $2,000 scholarship will be distributed to recipients once they have been committed to a K-State approved study abroad program.

** The $750 scholarship will be distributed to recipients 10 days prior to the start of the Spring term and is intended to pay for a KSU Global Issues and Perspectives course.
