Program Description:

Georgia College undergraduate students who have submitted a complete application for a study abroad program may apply for the New Horizons Scholarship. Students applying for this scholarship will automatically be considered for the GC Study Abroad Scholarship. Students wishing to apply for the Global Citizen Award will need to complete a separate application. 

The New Horizons Study Abroad Scholarship is awarded to deserving members of student populations currently under-represented in study abroad at Georgia College. Students must belong to at least one of the following under-represented populations:
  • Students of color
  • Students registered with the GC Student Disability Resource Center
  • First-generation college students
  • Students suffering exceptional financial and/or other hardship(s)

Scholarship applications will be evaluated based on the following criteria:
  • Location: study abroad programs in lesser traveled to destinations
  • Duration: longer study abroad programs
  • Financial Need: demonstrated financial need
  • Essay: Essays that address questions of academic engagement, global and civic responsibility and have strong grammar, syntax and are well written.
  • Cultural Elements: study abroad programs with greater opportunities for cultural immersion
  • GPA

If students score well, they may expect to receive award amounts starting at the base amount below and not to exceed $2000, as determined by the duration of the study abroad program:
  • Academic Year: $1500
  • Semester: $1000
  • Short-term (6-10 weeks): $750
  • Short-term (less than 6 weeks): $500
