All 2015-2016 scholarship recipients have been announced!

Congratulations to our 36 new Scholars. You can read about them here

Thank you to all students that applied – we received applications from almost two thousand students.   The FEA Scholarship Review Committee had the daunting task of selecting scholarship finalists from a pool of highly qualified candidates.  If you were not selected, and should you seek to study abroad during the Summer 2016 and beyond, and otherwise meet all of FEA’s requirements, we encourage you to reapply for the next cycle. The application opens mid-November 2015.

Congratulations to all of our recipients, and thank you to all volunteers!
