Experiential learning and overseas study can be transformative experiences that offer students valuable new outlooks on career possibilities. Many college students show an early interest in studying abroad, undertaking an internship, or engaging in faculty-supported research, fieldwork, or service learning. But financial barriers often prevent them from carrying out these experiences. The Beyond120 scholarships and Brian and Kate Harfe awards offer significant financial support for students to embark on these life-impacting ventures. They also provide students the opportunity to serve as ambassadors for their programs and share the impact of their experiences with peers.
Beyond120 Scholarship FAQs
Eligibility varies depending on the scholarship. For most scholarships, eligibility is as follows:
• Must have at least a 2.5 UF GPA to apply.
• Must be in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.
• Each applicant must be a UF degree-seeking student to qualify for consideration.
• Students do not need to have been selected for an experiential learning opportunity in order to apply for the scholarship, but must provide proof of acceptance before the scholarship is disbursed.
All scholarships funds will be dispersed directly to your ONE.UF account. Any charges to the student by the university may be taken out of these funds.
The Brian and Kate Harfe International Exchange Award provides financial support to students participating in one of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences exchange programs. The typical award amount is $400. (Students participating in these exchange programs are also eligible for a Post Family grant, which involves a separate application process. Learn more.)
