The Summer Institute Scholarship is open to all international student participants in the 2017 Summer Institute and is designed to promote diversity and provide opportunities for high-achieving students who may not otherwise be able to participate in the Summer Institute.

The $2,100 scholarship will cover the program fee, insurance, room and flexible meal plan for selected winners. Scholarship winners will be responsible for paying the remaining balance for in-state tuition and fees and housing deposit via their Georgia State University student account (plus airfare, visa fees, and personal expenses).

  • Need (financial or otherwise) for the scholarship
  • Interest in and enthusiasm for studying at Georgia State University’s Summer Institute
  • Interest in and willingness to serve in a leadership role while in the Summer Institute

*Preference will be given to students with little or no international experience.

At the conclusion of the program, scholarship recipients are expected to submit a brief written description of what the scholarship meant to them.
