Recipient of the Fund for Education Abroad Scholarship
I recommend that all GW students who qualify should apply for these scholarships! Specifically, I recommend to 1) start the application process as early as possible and get feedback from multiple people on the essays, 2) take time to understand your purpose of studying abroad and the aspects of the program you are applying to. The key is in the details and how a specific study abroad program will align with your professional, personal, and academic goals. In addition, the scholarship is helpful because it requires students to reflect on their experiences through weekly blogs.
