Scholarships

The University of Delaware’s Institute for Global Studies currently offers two scholarship programs, IGS Need-Based Scholarships and the Delaware Diplomats program. 

 

IGS Need-Based Scholarships

 

How much,

and how may it be used?

Covers up to 50% to 75% of the Program Fee:

  • may only be used towards the final balance
    (not initial $1000 payment)
  • may not be used toward: tuition, books, registration fees, airfare, personal expenses, etc.
Who is eligible?

Full-time, matriculated UD undergrads applying to UD travel study (not exchange) programs who have:

  • high level of financial need determined by UD’s Office of Student Financial Services (make sure you have a current FAFSA on-file!)
  • strong UD GPA (usually 3.00 or higher)
  • no prior IGS Need Scholarship
  • no prior participation on UD travel study

What do I need to do,

and by when?

By the application deadline, submit:

(ask more than 1 professor)

(even if your faculty director does not require this, you MUST have a recommendation to be considered for an IGS scholarship)

When are awards announced?

Scholarships are announced when acceptances are announced.
(scholarship and acceptances decisions are in the same email)

Are IGS Scholarships competitive? Yes. All students are considered, but only approximately 30% of students receive an IGS award.
If I receive an award, will I be asked to do anything?

Yes.  You will be asked to:

  • email IGS your 2 best photos depicting what you have learned about the local culture of your program location
  • contribute brief, weekly written submissions and photos for the IGS Global Blog
Specific instructions will be given prior to departure.
Could I receive multiple awards?

Multiple IGS Need Scholarships?  No.

An IGS Scholarship and also a Delaware Diplomat award?  Yes.
If I receive an award, how could I lose it?  What would happen?

You will be required to repay your scholarship award in full if you:

  • get a serious judicial violation before the program begins
  • are dismissed from a program due to improper conduct
  • withdraw from a program after funds have been spent on your behalf
If I don’t receive an award, would IGS reconsider? All IGS Scholarship award decisions are final and subject to a student conduct review.

 

 

Delaware Diplomats

 

The Delaware Diplomats is a campus engagement opportunity open to freshmen, sophomores and juniors
