TEAN 20 for 20 scholarships (meet with advisor to see if travel
can get BIMS credit).
We’re turning 20 this year! To celebrate 20 years of students
studying and interning abroad with us, we've teamed up with our
partners to bring you the "20 for 20" scholarship program. We have
20 scholarships for both semester and summer study abroad programs
across the Asia Pacific to encourage even more students to study
abroad. One lucky applicant will also receive a full ride from TEAN
to a program of their choice that includes tuition, program fees,
housing and airfare to study abroad in 2016.
The scholarship awards range between $500 - $5,000. This process
is extremely competitive considering the limited amount of awards
available due to a higher minimum and maximum award. Completing the
application is not a guarantee for a scholarship award.
Students are welcome to apply for multiple scholarships if they
meet the requirements for each, but must fill out a separate
application for each scholarship.
