SRAS Explorer Grants
Encouraging Curiosity and Global Awareness
One of the very early objectives of SRAS was to get students to study in more unfamiliar locations and if studying for an academic year, to consider multiple locations for a broader perspective on the region. Some of our programs even bring you, though built-in travel programs, to multiple countries. We are very pleased that so many of our students do take advantage of this option, either in one experience abroad or by returning to participate in other SRAS programs.
To further promote this unique possibility with SRAS, we are offering over the 2016-2017 academic year (including summer 2017) several scholarships to students really looking to explore the region.
SRAS EXPLORER I AWARD: $2000 + $500
Spend your academic year in any two SRAS program locations. Only one of the locations may be Moscow or St. Petersburg. This award is applied toward your second semester. $500 bonus if you select programs that will bring you to at least three different countries (see the travel itineraries for the programs).
SRAS EXPLORER II Award (with summer): $1500-3500
Spring 2017 in any SRAS program in any SRAS location + Security and Society Summer School in Warsaw or Coexistence and Religion in Georgia (either is immediately following): $1500 applied toward summer
Academic year 2016-2017 any SRAS program (or combination of programs) in any SRAS location + Security and Society Summer School in Warsaw or Coexistence and Religion in Georgia (either is immediately following): $2500 (+$1000 bonus if you select programs that bring you to at least 4 different countries - see the travel itineraries for the programs)
To apply for the Explorer Grants, simply sign up for the requisite programs. The award will be applied by our staff after acceptance. Deadlines for the scholarship are the same as for the program you will apply for. Apply for both at the same time.
Remember, in any location you can also apply for the Braver award, named for one of SRAS' early explorers!
