  • 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.
