ThailandScholarships and other ideas for raising funds for studying abroad may be found at the following web sites. Most scholarships require certification by a Study Abroad Coordinator. If you are applying for a scholarship you must schedule a meeting with a Coordinator at least a week before the scholarship deadline to discuss the application. Certification is not guaranteed if this meeting does not take place.

You are encouraged to do independent research. If you find a scholarship you are eligible for, apply!

Announcing the HSU Global Ambassadors Fund - a new scholarship!

This grant provides up to $500 to support full-time HSU students seeking to study abroad in a 12 unit/1 semester (or equivalent) program anywhere in the world to cover costs not readily paid from other sources. First preference would be given to students required to study abroad for their major, and have a demonstrable need, but are unable to get funding or work during the semester while abroad, and with at least one semester left at HSU after they return.

Other Scholarships

The Gilman Scholarship Program looks for diversity. HSU is a Hispanic Serving Institution - one of the Gilman diversity criteria. Other diversity categories include: ethnicity, disability, non-tradition student, LGBT, First Generation, STEM majors, low income etc. All you need is to be receiving a Pell Grant. Gilman does not ask for your GPA on the application! You do need to talk about diversity in your application  - otherwise the Gilman Scholarship reviewers will not know!
