Study Abroad Scholarship for Students with Disabilities

This scholarship recognizes recipients of the Study Abroad Quality Funds Scholarships for participation in an MSU study abroad program. The scholarship is funded by a grant from the MSU Quality Funds. The grant recognizes that few students with disabilities participate in study abroad programs or international travel, activities that lead to acquisition of important personal skills and knowledge resulting in a more competitive resume for a future job market. Students participating in the program who are selected to receive this scholarship will be awarded $3,000. While applicants to any MSU study abroad program are eligible to apply, priority is given to applicants who have been approved to participate in the Disability in a Diverse Society program.

To be eligible for consideration you must:

  1. Be a student with a documented disability
  2. Have applied to a credit-bearing MSU study abroad program
  3. Meet the eligibility criteria for the program

Priority will be given to students who have applied for participation in the Disability in a Diverse Society program and who have a demonstrated financial need.

If you are a student with a disability who is interested in participating in an international research opportunity, please discuss with your RCPD specialist.
