Applying to multiple scholarships increases your chances of receiving funding. While each scholarship has its own level of competitiveness, all have the same goal of helping students to learn, intern or work abroad. We encourage you to read each website carefully for eligibility, application instructions, and deadlines. Note: Scholarship application deadlines for summer/fall/year-long programs tend to be between January and March; scholarship deadlines for winter/spring programs tend to be between September and October. GOOD LUCK!
