Below is a list of various resources to help you fund your program. We also encourage you to speak with your campus study abroad office.
Community Engagement Scholarship
The Community Engagement Scholarship is offered in the memory of Kalyn Elizabeth Peterson whose life was cut tragically short in 2010. Kalyn leaves behind a legacy of promoting diversity and putting others' needs before her own. From a young age Kalyn volunteered her time and was involved in several civic organizations. Recognized for her abilities to bring about the best in others, Kalyn's talents will be memorialized through the recipients of this scholarship.
In memory of Kalyn, ISA Service-Learning will award one $1,000 scholarship to summer program participants. All ISA Service-Learning or Study + Service-Learning combo participants are eligible. Once accepted into the summer program, students can submit an essay through their ISA Student Portal to be considered for this scholarship. Scholarship winners will be notified of their awards approximately six weeks after the application deadline, and recipients will be posted on the ISA website. The ISA scholarship application deadline for summer programs is February 28th.
It is the participant's responsibility to discuss the scholarship with their home university and determine whether the financial aid award will be affected if the student is awarded a scholarship by ISA Service-Learning.
