As a part of #intledunited, GoAbroad.com will be coordinating a fundraiser to support future travel opportunities for young females with the Fund for Education Abroad.
For the month of January 2017, contributions can be made via FundMyTravel towards the scholarship.
The Fund for Education Abroad (FEA) is an established 501(c)(3) organization that works to expand access to study abroad. Applicants from groups underrepresented in study abroad and those destined for non-traditional locations are given preference, in an effort to make the demographics of U.S. undergraduates studying abroad reflect the rich diversity of the U.S. population.
Further information about scholarship applications and award amounts will be announced after the campaign in February 2017.
GoAbroad.com will pledge $1,000 USD as the base for the scholarship. All FundMyTravel fees will be waived with the exception of the payment processing fee. GoAbroad.com and the Fund for Education Abroad reserve the right to increase the amount of scholarships awarded based on the total amount fundraised.
