Scholarships

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 the 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!

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.
