Program Description:

VT Global Education Scholarships

The Global Education Scholarships are awarded primarily on the basis of financial need as understood from the assessment of the Office of University Scholarships and Financial Aid (FAFSA-demonstrated need). However, consideration is also given to need that may not be addressed by the FAFSA, and therefore it is not necessary to have FAFSA on file. International students can also be considered for this scholarship. 
 
Apart from financial need, consideration is given to the following:

  • Quality of the applicant’s motivation
  • Educational fit of the study abroad program
  • Academic merit
  • Letter of recommendation
Students wishing to apply for a Global Education Scholarship must meet the following eligibility requirements:
  • GPA 2.5 or above
  • Full-time enrollment

            Fall semester            12 VT credits minimum
            Winter session           3 VT credits minimum (plus 3 VT credits minimum in fall)
            Spring semester        12 VT credits minimum
            Short term spring       3 VT credits minimum (plus 3 VT credits minimum in spring)
            Summer terms           6 VT credits minimum (can be spread out over the whole summer, i.e. 3 credits abroad and 3 credits at Tech)
  • Enrollment in credit bearing programs (non-credit internships do not apply)       
  • Enrollment in one of the following: VT partner university (either exchange or direct enroll), ISEP Exchange, and faculty-led programs (Third Party and Direct Enroll programs are not eligible)
