Off-Campus Study & Exchanges is excited to announce affiliate scholarships available for the fall 2017 semester only. These scholarships are available to students studying off-campus on an API or CIEE program.  The awards will range from $250 – $1,000 and will be credited directly to a student’s account at Skidmore College.

Applying to the affiliate scholarships does not preclude students from applying directly to API or CIEE for scholarships.  Nor does the award of any scholarships impact a student’s eligibility to receive the $1,600 Off-Campus Study Stipend.

To be eligible to apply for the API or CIEE affiliate scholarship, you must:

  • be a student at Skidmore College
  • be approved by Off-Campus Study & Exchanges to study off campus
  • be accepted to an API or CIEE program for fall 2017
  • have at least a 2.75 cumulative GPA

  • Why did you choose to apply to study abroad in your program location?
  • How will you benefit from receiving a scholarship?
  • Please also include your name, class year, major and cumulative GPA in the essay.

The deadline to submit your scholarship essay is Friday, April 14, 2017.
