Alliance Scholarships

The Alliance is pleased to offer scholarships for fall, spring, and summer programs in China and India. All award decisions are based on financial need. To be eligible for an Alliance scholarship, you must have applied for financial aid through your home school. The maximum award amount is $4,500 per student for the fall and spring terms and $2,500 per student for the summer term. Students from non-traditional majors or minority backgrounds are encouraged to apply.

In order to apply for an Alliance scholarship, you must first begin an application to the Alliance program of your choice by following the instructions here for China programs, India programs, or Multi-Country programs.

The scholarship application contains two pieces: your Scholarship Essay submitted via our online application system, and the Scholarship Financial Release Form to be completed by the Financial Aid Administrator on your home campus. Both pieces must be submitted by the same deadline as your Alliance program applications:

Summer 2014 - March 1, 2014 
Fall 2014 - April 15, 2014
Spring 2015 - November 1, 2014

Note: Alliance scholarships are only awarded to students who attend Alliance programs in India and China. Unfortunately, we do not award scholarships to students attending non-Alliance programs.

Students seeking financial aid should also speak with the study abroad and financial aid offices at their home institutions about taking scholarships and federal aid with them while studying overseas. Additional funding opportunities can be found here.
