AYS Study Abroad Grant
The Andrew Young School of Policy Studies is committed to helping students enrich their academic programs through international exchange and study. In 2017, the Dean’s Office will award $500 grants to individuals studying abroad during Maymester/Summer and $1,000 for students studying abroad on semester-length programs. Priority will be given to students who have never studied abroad and have financial need.
To be eligible for a $500 Maymester/Summer grant, you must provide evidence that you have made a deposit for a Maymester/Summer study abroad program. Suitable evidence is a screenshot of your deposit receipt from PAWS saved as a PDF. Students participating in semester-length exchange programs must have evidence of acceptance to the exchange program.
Questions about grants for study abroad should be directed to Cyntoria Johnson at firstname.lastname@example.org
International Access Scholarship
The International Access Scholarship (IAS) includes two awards:
- Need-based financial aid recipients with a minimum institutional GPA of 2.75 for undergraduates and 3.2 for graduate students.
- First-generation college students (defined as neither your mother nor father graduated from a 4-year institution); there is no GPA requirement for the first-generation award.
Applicants must be enrolled in degree or certificate programs who will be earning credit for an experience abroad. Your study abroad program application is your scholarship application for the IAS! All qualified applicants who:

by the deadlines listed below will be considered for the scholarship.
