ISEP is pleased to announce the recipients of our inaugural ISEP Community Scholarship and ISEP Founders Fellowship awards. These scholarships assist students from ISEP member institutions with a demonstrated financial need in making their goals to study abroad a reality. The awards support our mission to extend access and affordability of study abroad by encouraging applications from students who are statistically underrepresented in study abroad. Each ISEP Community Scholarship awardee will receive US$500, and the ISEP Founders Fellow will receive US$2,500 to use while studying abroad.
