There are Three LSSU Study Abroad Scholarship Opportunities for Students Studying Abroad During the Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter Semesters:

The following scholarships are open for students participating in a sponsored LSSU Study Abroad experience. Sponsoring trips include the LSSU faculty-led programs, the LSSU Scotland Experience, the MSU Japan Center program, ISA, CCIS or CIEE programs.

To qualify, the student must be accepted into an LSSU sponsored program, have completed 26 or more LSSU credits and meet the cumulative GPA requirement for the scholarship they are applying for.  The student must agree to complete a video student profile describing their study abroad experience and sign a press release to allow the posting of the video on future publications for LSSU.

To apply, the student must write an essay describing what the study abroad experience means to their future career plans. The essays must be submitted to the Study Abroad Office for consideration and will be reviewed by a committee of at least two faculty or staff members.
