GTOS Study Abroad Scholarship http://www.guidetoonlineschools.com/scholarships/study-abroad-scholarship

Basically, the award is for $2000, and a new scholarship is posted immediately after the current scholarship closes (approximately every three months); this ultimately means that a scholarship will always be available to your students.  The scholarship is also unlike most conventional scholarships because we judge applicants based off of their innovation and reasoning.  I wanted to take a new/fresh approach to financial aid, and allow students to be creative while expressing a compelling and well-substantiated argument.  The questions can be seen at the bottom of the page, but a sample question (pulled off of our current scholarship) is:

1)      You are being sent abroad to accomplish a great task (can fall outside of the realm of academia).  What have you been sent to do, and why is this significant to you and/or mankind?

Some additional notes about the scholarship:  it is a general study abroad scholarship – not program specific, and I do not impose a minimum timeframe for the student’s length of travel.

If this is a resource that you would like to provide to your students, please let me know.  It will help me anticipate the number of student applicants we have for the upcoming quarter, which will be useful to our scholarship committee.
