eligibilityFGS awards scholarships to U.S. citizens studying abroad, three times annually. Scholarships are valued at $2000. All decisions regarding scholarship awards are those of FGS and are final.

If awarded a scholarship, you will have one year from the date of the email notification to provide confirmation of participation and other requested information in order to collect your FGS scholarship check. After one year, the scholarship is forfeited if unclaimed.

FGS keeps in touch with our award recipients both while abroad and following the completion of the study abroad program. Our scholars should and do expect to hear from us!  Scholarship recipients will be profiled on the FGS website
