Lancers Abroad Correspondent Scholarship

The Center for Global Engagement encourages students to apply for the Lancers Abroad Correspondent Scholarship, which will be awarded to selected study abroad participants who document and share their study abroad experience online before, during, and after their program. There are a limited number of awards worth up to $500 for short-term programs, $900 for semester-long affiliate programs, or $1,500 for semester-long exchange programs.

Selected correspondents must:

  • Propose and carry out a Correspondent Plan that details how they will share their experience abroad in photos, videos, and writing via various social media platforms. It should address how they plan to:

  • Submit a 500-word narrative report of (and with relevant screenshots from) their correspondent experience by the end of the term following their return from studying abroad.
  • Participate in the fall Study Abroad Fair (typically the second or third Thursday of class in the fall term) and/or International Education Week in the spring semester (typically in early April) or other outreach events as approved by the Director of Study Abroad.

In order to be eligible for the Lancers Abroad Correspondent Scholarship, applicants must:

  • Be a current Longwood University Student.
  • Have a minimum GPA of 2.0.
