DiversityAbroad.COM Overseas Ambassador SCHOLARSHIP

“The fact is, with every friendship you make, and every bond of trust you establish, you are shaping the image of America projected to the rest of the world. That is so important. So when you study abroad, you’re actually helping to make America stronger.” - Michelle Obama

The DiversityAbroad.com scholarship is an initiative created for current students or recent graduates who are planning to study, intern, volunteer or teach abroad. The Overseas Ambassadors will serve as an overseas correspondent, sharing their experiences to motivate other members of the DiversityAbroad.com community to go abroad. By writing insightful articles, sharing inspiring videos and pictures about your new surroundings, cross-cultural observations and personal growth, your words will inspire other diverse students to go abroad and challenge them to rethink how study abroad experiences can be for everyone.

Diversity Abroad, in cooperation with the AIFS, will offer a $500 stipend for semester study. Five stipends are available for each term.

Application Process and Timeline:

Overseas Ambassadors serve during a 4-6 month time frame, depending on the length of their chosen study abroad program.
