The Summer/Fall 2024 Application, Academic Year 2024-2025 Is Closed.

The application closed on Wednesday, February 7, at 12:00 PM (noon) Eastern Standard Time. We cannot accept late applications or grant extensions. Thank you for understanding.

If you are planning to study abroad in spring 2025, the application will open in summer 2024 (date TBD).

FEA invests in deserving U.S. undergraduates who are least likely to study abroad. More than 100 volunteer reviewers read applications each cycle. In partnership with them, we consider financial need, demographic factors, and academic plan and preparedness to decide our scholarship recipients.

  • Financial Need is determined by the FEA Financial Aid Form we provide. We require applicants to have completed a FAFSA for the current academic year.
  • Demographic Factors that are considered include first-generation college student status, racial identity, and community college experience.
  • Academic Plan and Preparedness are determined by your essays and unofficial transcript.

Are you a study abroad or financial aid advisor, interested in helping your students apply for FEA?
