International Travel Scholarship Application
The Lubin School of Business, through a grant received from the Figueroa Family Fund and the Scheinman Fund, is awarding scholarships for International Field Studies. Students who are eligible can expect to receive $1,500 per International Field Study. An additional $1,000 will be awarded to a qualified student who demonstrates outstanding QPA and financial need, and submits a well-written essay.

For students traveling to Japan, the Nancy and Gene Celentano Fund offers $2,000 scholarships exclusively for Lubin School of Business students enrolled in the Japan course who hold a minimum GPA of 3.3, have completed at least 12 undergraduate credits or 9 graduate credits, and demonstrate financial need.

For students traveling to India, through a generous donation made at the Spirit of Pace Awards auction, the Spirit of Pace award offers ONE STUDENT a $3,700 scholarship which fully covers the travel portion of the India field study course. Of the students enrolled in the India course applying for all scholarships, one best overall applicant will be selected for this $3,700 scholarship. Students who apply for the Figueroa scholarship will automatically be considered for the Spirit of Pace $3,700 award, in lieu of the $1,500 award.

These scholarships are administered through Lubin's Center for Global Business Programs.
