The Global Education Office (GEO) at Arizona State University will be awarding $750,000 in scholarships to students on mobility global education programs for the 2023 calendar year. This is triple the amount awarded to students pre-pandemic.

Aligning with the ASU Charter pillars of accessibility and inclusion, the new GEO Go Global Grant will help to lower the financial barrier, one of the most cited obstacles for students to study abroad, and will help to expand ASU’s global reach.

“Coming into my first year of college, I dreamed of studying abroad and obtaining a global education that many continuously say is an experience every college student must take part in,” said Delcia Blancas Hernandez, a 2022 scholarship recipient. “Except this luxury only seemed to be reserved for students who actually could afford such a once-in-a-lifetime experience while students like myself, who are constantly labeled as low income, see a money barrier that keeps them from getting ahead.

“With the support of my scholarship, I was not only able to fulfill my dreams of achieving a global education, but also helped alleviate the financial burden that such amazing experiences at times carry not only for myself, but also my family."

The scholarship will help to broaden the population of students who may not typically participate in study abroad programs due to financial constraints. It will help to open doors for students who may not have this opportunity otherwise, giving them the chance to partake in all the benefits study abroad offers.
