About the Scholarship
ISEP is proud to serve our members in Africa by encouraging student participation in our broad array of programs across the continent.

Students at HBCUs: Those that attend a Historically Black College or University within the ISEP Community
Heritage-seeking students: Those who choose their study abroad location based on having cultural heritage in Africa
Who can apply?
Any HBCU or heritage-seeking student from the United States who plans to attend an ISEP program in Africa can apply.
How much is awarded to scholarship recipients?
