International Programs Anniversary Scholarship
In honor of our 50th Anniversary in 2007, International Programs established a
scholarship fund of $75,000 with the intention of increasing the number of
Florida State students who study abroad. Florida State degree-seeking students
who have an overall GPA of 3.5 or better may apply for this need and merit-based
scholarship. Scholarships will be available fall, spring and summer sessions.
International Programs Achievement Scholarship
International Programs offers $20,000 annually to the creme de la creme of the
FSU student body. Florida State degree-seeking students who have an overall GPA
of 3.8 or better may apply for this merit-based scholarship. Scholarships will
be available fall, spring, and summer sessions.
International Programs Spring Break Program Scholarship
International Programs offers a limited number of scholarships for high
achieving students participating on FSU International Programs spring
break programs. Applicants must be Florida State degree-seeking students
with an overall GPA of 3.8 or better and no demonstrated financial need
OR an overall GPA of 3.5 or better with demonstrated financial need.
Scholarships will be awarded in denominations up to 25% of the program fee.
The Presidents of Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) institutions created the ACC
International Academic Collaboration, which is a joint effort to expand study
abroad opportunities and realize the potential of global collaborations for
research and service. One initiative supporting this effort is the ACC
Scholarship program, which provides a total of $5,000 to each member institution
to be awarded for use on their study abroad programs. Florida State
degree-seeking undergraduate students who have an overall GPA of 3.5 or better
may apply for this merit-based scholarship. The Florida State University
International Programs will determine the amount of each scholarship and in
which terms they will be available based on the applicant pool for each session.
Nationally, less than twenty percent of those who study abroad are minority students.
In an effort to help more minorities study abroad, the Florida State University has
offered a Minority Scholarship for over twenty years. Florida State degree-seeking ethnic
minority students with an overall GPA of 2.5 or better may apply for the Minority
Scholarship. This scholarship can be applied toward a fall, spring, and summer semesters
in Florence, London, Panama City or Valencia.
Spring Break Programs Scholarship
We have recently begun offering spring break programs, which are short trips that
complement a course being offered in Tallahassee during the spring semester. An
increasing percentage of students are only able to go abroad for a short period of
time, and we want to encourage students to participate on these new programs. We
are offering scholarships worth up to 25% of the program fee for FSU degree-seeking
students who have a 3.5 GPA and demonstrated financial need, or who have a 3.8 GPA
with no demonstrated need.
Victor Carrabino Scholarship
The Victor Carrabino scholarship was established by the parents
of a former Florence student to help students who are on financial
aid to fully participate in the program and take advantage of all
that Florence offers. Non-FSU degree-seeking undergraduate
students who have been accepted to the Florida State Florence
fall or spring semester programs only may apply for this
need-based $3,000 scholarship.
William Cullen Klein Memorial Scholarship
This new scholarship was established in memory of Cullen Klein, a talented linguist double-majoring
in Spanish and Chinese. His family established the scholarship in his memory to help open the world
to other students by studying abroad. FSU International Programs will determine the amount of each
scholarship; this scholarship is merit-based, and is available for FSU student participating on the
summer Tianjin program.
Students who have completed 18 or more credit hours on programs administered by
the International Programs Office, with a 3.0 average or greater in course work
at the international location(s), are eligible for discounts for subsequent IP
programs. Scholarships are $500 for summer sessions or $1,000 for fall or spring
semesters. These savings have already been built into the program fees for First
Year Abroad Program students.
