New Horizons Scholarship for Embedded Programs (Scholarship Program)
- Program Terms: Fall-Embedded, Spring-Embedded
UK Education Abroad offers a competitive scholarship for full-time undergraduate and graduate students participating on for-credit embedded programs during the fall or spring semester. The New Horizons Scholarship is awarded twice per year. This award is intended to be just one component of a student’s comprehensive strategy for funding education abroad experiences.
The Scholarship Review Committee, comprised of faculty and staff from across campus, considers the following criteria when reviewing applications:
The scholarship award amount is $500. Students are not guaranteed to be awarded a scholarship.
To be eligible to apply, applicants must be:
In order to be considered for a UK Education Abroad Scholarship, students must complete the following by the scholarship deadline:
Students who have not applied for a for-credit education abroad program (in addition to this scholarship application) will not be eligible for the New Horizons Scholarship. Meaning, it is not possible to wait and see if a scholarship is awarded before selecting a program on which to participate.
This scholarship will not be issued in the form of cash and will not be disbursed before the term in which the student will be studying abroad. If you are receiving credit in the spring, but traveling in the summer, you are required to apply for the spring scholarship. UKEA cannot distribute funds if you are not registered for a course related to your education abroad program.
Once disbursed, the scholarship will pay off any outstanding student account balance first and the remainder will be issued to the student via direct deposit.
In many instances, UK EA scholarships are awarded after a student will have made purchases relating to their international program (i.e. program deposits, flights, housing, etc.), thus the scholarship may serve as a form of reimbursement for the amount awarded. Because of this, UK EA highly recommends that students do not rely solely on scholarship funds as the form of payment for program and related fees.
UK Education Abroad makes every effort to inform all applicants about scholarship awards 3-4 weeks after the application deadline. The goal is for students to be notified at the 1st of the next month.
