Freeman Awards for Study in Asia

Posted on 12/8/2010 2:46:34 PM

The Institute of International Education is pleased to announce that it will re-launch the Freeman-ASIA Program with a generous grant from the Freeman Foundation. Applications can be submitted online starting in January 2011 for study abroad beginning in Summer 2011.

Freeman-ASIA scholarships will be available for study abroad anytime through the 2012–2013 academic year, with application deadlines listed on the program website.

Freeman-ASIA provides financial support to American undergraduates with demonstrated financial need to study abroad for academic credit during the summer semester or academic year in one of fifteen countries/regions in East and Southeast Asia. Award amounts vary from $3,000 to $7,000 depending on the length of study.

The program’s goal is to increase the number of Americans with first-hand exposure to and understanding of Asia and its peoples and cultures. Upon their return to the U.S., students are required to promote study in Asia by sharing their experiences with peers on their home campuses and in their communities.
