Summer 2017 Study Abroad Award, Apply by Feb. 28
Leiden, the Netherlands

In support of the Institute of International Education’s Generation Study Abroad initiative, Webster University is proud to offer a new award to summer 2017 study abroad participants. The University is offering this award with the aim of driving up the number of students who have the opportunity to gain international experience through academic study abroad this summer.

At Webster, we emphasize the importance of global awareness and believe that a study abroad experience enhances a student’s global outlook and overall education.

Cost is one of the main barriers that keeps students from participating on a study abroad program, especially during the summer when other funding is not readily available. We hope this award, which will be applied directly to the cost of tuition, combined with the Webster World Traveler Program (WWTP) round-trip airline ticket will encourage students to take advantage of our worldwide network of campuses this summer. Full award details are listed below.
