Program Description:

Haenicke Institute for Global Education Study Abroad Scholarship for WMU faculty-led programs

Notice to applicants: Haenicke Institute for Global Education Study Abroad need-based and merit-based scholarships for Spring, Summer I, and Summer II 2018 are suspended due to lack of available funding. The Office of Study Abroad will begin accepting HIGE scholarship applications with its Fall 2018, cycle. Students are encouraged to seek scholarship opportunities from their respective departments and colleges and from external sources, and to contact the specialist assigned to their country/region for additional help and suggestions.

The Haenicke Institute for Global Education offers need-based scholarships for short-term study abroad programs directed by WMU faculty. Awards are worth up to $500.

All students who meet the qualifications below are encouraged to apply. Students need not be accepted or committed to a study abroad program before applying, but they must ultimately commit to participation on a short-term faculty-led program to be eligible.

Minimum Qualifications:
• Enrollment  in a WMU degree-granting program; students who graduate before the start of the study abroad course are not eligible.
• Only U.S. citizens or permanent residents may also apply for need-based awards, which are based on demonstrated financial need (FAFSA required) and expected family contribution (EFC) calculation.
• Admission and commitment to a short-term study abroad program taught by WMU faculty.
