What does it fund?

Global Business Center Study Abroad scholarships can be used for summer programs including the Foster School Rome Program, Exploration Seminars, and academic quarter or semester programs. Our scholarship funds come from very generous Foster School alums and friends that support study abroad. Some of these funds are designated for certain programs (Rome Program, WHU Exchange, Exchanges in Asia, etc.) or for students that can demonstrate financial need. We recommend that you fill out FAFSA before submitting your application.
