Considering that one the biggest barriers to pursuing studying abroad opportunities is the financial burden, students accepted into a study abroad program will be able to apply for a $2000 scholarship to support their study abroad endeavours. This scholarship will be awarded twice per year: once in the fall and once in the spring. To be eligible, students must have applied to/been admitted to a KPU Study Abroad Exchange program. Scholarships will only be awarded upon acceptance into the program of choice.
