Program Description

Local-to-Global Scholarship

Student in Accra
To increase the number of high-achieving Arizona residents going abroad, the ASU Study Abroad Office is pleased to offer a limited number of Local-to-Global Scholarships of $2,000 for summer programs and $3,000 for semester programs to ASU students participating in programs sponsored by the Study Abroad Office. Programs must be located outside the U.S.  Students must be applying for a Summer, Fall, or Spring program, and summer programs must be at least three weeks in length.

Local-to-Global scholarship recipients will be required to commit to and complete a follow-on project to help the Study Abroad Office share study abroad opportunities with other ASU students.  More information will be given to recipients at a later date.
 










 

To be eligible for a Local-to-Global Scholarship, applicants must:
 
  • Be an Arizona resident- in other words, a student who pays in-state tuition. 
  • Have an active application to an ASU-sponsored study abroad program by the scholarship deadline.
  • Be planning to participate on a program that is at least three weeks in length (21 days or more)
  • Have a minimum cumulative ASU GPA of 3.0 at the time of application.
  • Have a FAFSA on file in order to determine level of need. 
  • Be a degree-seeking ASU student (undergraduate or graduate) at the time of application.
  • Have at least sophomore standing according to credits
  • Be in good standing with the Office of Student Rights and Responsibilities.
  • Commit to and complete a follow-on project to help the SAO share study abroad opportunities with other ASU students.
Preference will be given to first-generation college students as indicated on their FAFSA.
Application process:
  • 2 essays (approximately 500-750 words each) addressing the prompts below:
    • Considering your status as an Arizona resident, what does Local-to-Global mean to you?
    • What has motivated you to venture out on this specific study abroad experience? 
  • 1 biographic statement (approximately 50 words) to be used in publications

Please note, although you can apply for other scholarships and grants offered by the Study Abroad Office, you may only receive one.
