In the Spring 2019 application cycle, Access Partners CET Academic Programs, Institute for Study Abroad, and USAC: University Studies Abroad Coalition have available scholarship funding. Other Access Partners, including AIFS, CAPA The Global Education Network, CIEE, The Intern Group, SIT World Learning, and the University of Auckland, may offer additional funding opportunities as well.

FEA scholarships are awarded with a preference for underrepresented students and those with a demonstrated financial need. Including this year’s recipients, a total of 268 scholars, including minority, first-generation college and community college students, have benefited from over $1.3 million in scholarships granted since FEA’s inception in 2010. In the last FEA application cycle, 93% of the students awarded were of minority backgrounds, and 91% were first-generation college students. Additionally, 32% of scholars have a community college background.
