SCHOLARSHIPS

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.
