AMIDEAST Education Abroad Blog Abroad Scholarships are awarded in the form of a program reduction. Students on semester programs receive $1,000 and students on summer programs receive $500. Blog Abroad scholarships are awarded only for one term.
Students are eligible to receive both our Needs-Based Scholarship and the Blog Abroad scholarship for the same program.
ELIGIBILITY & APPLICATION
This scholarship is only available to citizens and permanent residents of the United States participating on a semester or summer AMIDEAST Education Abroad program. Students on the FIE/AMIDEAST Conflict & the Struggle for Peace summer program are eligible for a Blog Abroad scholarship.
Awards will only be made to students who complete their application by the deadline. The application consists of:
- Blog Abroad Scholarship Questionnaire
- Writing Sample or Creative Product Submission
For a semester award, students will submit 7 entries, beginning a few weeks before program with the final submission prior to departure from their host country. Students can submit up to 2 written blog posts and the rest can come from our list of options such as photo essays, videos, Instagram takeovers, or creative writing.
For a summer award, students will submit 4 entries along the same guidelines as above, except they may only submit 1 written post.

Receipt of a scholarship from AMIDEAST may result in changes or reductions to the financial aid you receive from your home institution. We therefore strongly urge you to consult with your financial aid office prior to applying for an AMIDEAST Education Abroad Scholarship to determine whether you might be affected by such a reduction or change. If you are awarded an AMIDEAST Education Abroad Scholarship, we will inform the study abroad office at your home college or university; you are responsible for reporting any award to your financial aid office.
