Center for Global Education Scholarships
(available to Rutgers University students only):
CENTER FOR GLOBAL EDUCATION SCHOLARSHIPS
Competitive scholarships awarded to limited amount of applicants per semester by the Center for Global Education. Students are advised to apply to many scholarships from different funding sources to ensure the highest chance of funding, and not to base the decision to study abroad on receiving these scholarships.
To apply for a scholarship all students will need to complete and submit a Financial Planning Worksheet (downloadable from the Materials section of your online application) with their application. In addition to the Financial Planning Worksheet students will be asked to answer scholarship-specific questions. Students’ original study abroad personal statements will also be used when determining awards. Students may apply for 1, 2 or all 3 scholarships, but are only eligible to receive one GGE scholarship per term.
Financial Need Scholarship – For students with demonstrated financial need. Financial Need is calculated based upon financial aid received during the semester plus any additional financial information provided by the student. Students are asked to submit a short statement describing their financial need beyond the financial aid that they may receive.
Academic Merit Scholarship – For students with a 3.8 or higher cumulative GPA (as calculated per last completed semester) and a demonstrated connection between their academic interests (major, minor, research internships) and the program that they are applying to. Students are asked to submit a short statement describing these academic interests and how they align with their chosen study abroad program.
Study Abroad Ambassador Scholarship – For students who commit to sharing their experience and promoting study abroad opportunities at Rutgers upon their return to campus. Students are asked to submit a summary of how they will do this in the scholarship application. Students are encouraged to think about innovative ways to target underrepresented student populations in study abroad.
