There are three different scholarships in this funding program.  One application will allow you to be considered for all of these scholarships.  Please note that these scholarships are only given once a year and are for students studying abroad during the Summer or Maymester.

Craige Global Fellows Scholarship
This scholarship is named in honor of its donor, Betty Jean Craige, University Professor Emerita of Comparative Literature and Director Emerita of the Willson Center for Humanities and Arts. A strong proponent of international exchange and collaboration during her 38 years as a scholar and teacher at the University of Georgia, Dr. Craige created this award in 2011 to encourage and support Franklin College undergraduate students who wish to participate in an official UGA study abroad program in a non-English speaking environment. Selection for this award is based on financial need, academic promise, and the applicant’s essay.

Tome Family Study Abroad Fund
Created in 2006 and named in honor of UGA alumnus Bill Tome and his family, Mr. Tome established this award to enable students in the Franklin College with limited financial resources the opportunity to participate in study abroad programs.

Cassandra Young and Jeffrey Sherman Study Abroad Scholarship Opportunity
