The Associated Colleges of the Midwest (ACM) does not offer off-study scholarships. However, ACM students do not have to lose hope. Eligible students can take advantage of many scholarship programs offered beyond the walls of ACM. ACM encourages students to try the school’s suggested scholarships and other financial aid programs. Here are some possible off-campus study scholarships to consider:
Bridging Project for Study Abroad in Japan
This scholarship is offered by the Association of Teachers of Japanese Bridging Project. Students who are interested in studying in Japan may take advantage of this offer. Per semester, scholarship grants can amount up to $2,500. One school year’s worth of scholarship is worth $4,000.
Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship
This scholarship is offered to American undergraduate students with minimal financial means. These students must also be Pell Grant recipients. Through the Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship, the undergraduate can study abroad. Any place in the world may be allowed by the scholarship but preference is given to a few countries, such as Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and Western Europe. Amount granted may reach $5,000 a year.
DiversityAbroad.com Study Abroad Scholarship
This scholarship is offered to twenty students per year. For each of the spring and fall seasons, six students are given the grant. Eight students are granted the scholarship during the summer. The DiversityAbroad.com study abroad scholarship is offered to economically disadvantaged students who want to experience studying outside of the country. $1,000 is given to each of the students.
There are many other study abroad scholarships being offered to financially disadvantaged but deserving students. The National Security Education Program (NSEP) – Boren Undergraduate Scholarship actually grants up to a maximum of $20,000 for each student in an academic year program. This program gives American students a chance to study in places that are critical to the US’ future security.
