                                            Hints for Scholarship Applications
     • DO NOT WAIT UNTIL YOU HAVE BEEN ACCEPTED INTO A STUDY ABROAD PROGRAM TO START APPLYING FOR
     SCHOLARSHIPS.

     • MANY APPLICATIONS ARE DUE OVER ONE YEAR IN ADVANCE OF STUDYING ABROAD—before you even apply for
     your study abroad program—START EARLY!!!

     • Make good use of your academic writing skills. Revise all essays and ask for feedback on your work. If possible, schedule an
     appointment with a tutor in the Writers Workshop. For details, visit: http://www.cws.illinois.edu/workshop/appointments/.

     • Ask your parents if any scholarships exist at their workplace for children of employees.

     • Look in your community— funding may be available through civic, ethnic, or religious groups. For example, former Girl
     Scouts should look at http://www.cjsfoundation.org/.

     • Some organizations that arrange study abroad programs (e.g., AIFS, Butler, CIEE, IES, Interstudy, and ISA) also offer their
     own scholarships. Check with your Study Abroad Advisor.

     • Many Illinois Colleges and Departments sponsor award competitions for excellence in a particular field of study, and not
     always for majors only. For more information, contact college or department offices and view their web pages.

• See campus programs (e.g., Women Studies Program) or geographical area centers (e.g., Center for African Studies) for
fellowships or scholarships to do research projects or to study language and culture.
