Student Study Abroad Stipends

The Savannah Council on World Affairs (SCWA) provides stipends to as many as nine students each year in support of their plans to engage in a study abroad program.  We believe that such programs increase an individual's perspective on world affairs and gives them a better foundation for future involvement in the larger community.

Each candidate must have already been accepted to a study abroad program, must meet our academic criteria, and must have a verifiable need for financial assistance.  Academic coordinators at Armstrong State University, Savannah State University and Georgia Southern University screen prospective candidates and provide us with a selection from which to choose.

Your generous donation can help us raise the level of support we provide or perhaps increase the number of students we support.


To contribute online, please click here.


On behalf of the students, Thank You!
