SITA Scholarship

Made Possible By: The South India Term Abroad program has bestowed a gift of $195,000 to the FEA to fund a legacy scholarship for study in India.

Description: This scholarship, derived from the Tamil word, nallennam, for benevolence and goodwill, will create two endowed scholarships: $5,000 for a full semester program and $2,500 for a summer term. The gift is part of FEA’s “Bringing the World Home” capital campaign, launched in 2017. All U.S. citizens or permanent residents currently enrolled as an undergraduate at a college or university in the U.S. are eligible to apply.

Preference will be given to those students who wish to study abroad in southern India. Additionally, preference will be for the former SITA consortial member institutions (Bates, Bowdoin, George Washington, Grinnell, Oberlin, Sarah Lawrence, Smith, and Whittier), but otherwise, the scholarships are open to all who wish to apply.
