Attention freshmen and sophomores: If you're receiving the Pell Grant and interested in studying abroad, the Frederick Douglass Global Fellowship is a perfect way to make it happen! Ten scholarships are awarded annually based on a combination of financial need, academic achievement and nominations from students' Minority Serviced Institution (MSI) senior leadership. The fellowship pays 100 percent of the program fees, including travel. Students participate in an intensive four-week, three-credit summer study abroad program designed to enhance leadership and intercultural skills. Learn more:
