The Global Summer Fellows Scholarship Program allows you to apply for all scholarships that GEO manages with a single application! The deadline to apply is Wednesday, January 12th at 4pm CST. No late or incomplete applications will be accepted.
Funded through the generosity of donors and the Office of the Provost, this opportunity provides financial support to Vanderbilt undergraduate students participating in Vanderbilt-approved credit-bearing Summer and Maymester programs abroad.
The maximum award amount is $8,500. We encourage students to pursue funding outside of GEO as well.
The Global Summer Fellows scholarships are need-based awards. To be eligible, students must have a CSS profile on file with Vanderbilt’s Office of Student Financial Aid for the current academic year. International students are only eligible if they currently receive need-based assistance from the university.
Students must have a 2.7 GPA. Preference will be given to students who are studying abroad for the first time, and to those whose applications clearly demonstrate that they are unable to study abroad during the regular academic year (i.e., fall or spring semester) due to academic or extracurricular obligations.
Previous recipients of the Global Summer Fellows scholarship are not eligible for the competition. For successful scholarship applications, previous or concurrent Vanderbilt awards for summer activities may reduce the final Global Summer Fellows award.
