Global Education Office (GEO) Summer 2 and Fall Scholarship Application

This application is for current students who are planning to study abroad in Fall 2023. The committee considers financial need (both FAFSA-demonstrated and need that might be missed by the FAFSA) and the quality of your essay responses.

  • Also for Graduate students and International students (only international students who are already Virginia Tech students planning to study abroad! This scholarship is NOT for international students who are trying to get accepted into Virginia Tech).
  • You can apply even if you’re not yet sure about your study abroad plans (you don’t need to have yet applied to a program, been accepted, paid a deposit, etc.)

Eligibility requirements:
GPA 2.5 or above
Enrollment in credit bearing programs
Enrollment in a program where tuition is paid to VT (Third Party and Autonomous Study programs are not eligible)
Project GO participants are not eligible (as the Project GO program fee is already paid for)
Full-time enrollment

  • Fall semester: 12 VT credits minimum
  • Summer II: 3 VT credits minimum

Do not wait till last minute: we cannot except applications past the deadline as Scholarship Central locks down and we can’t manually override the system!
