Honors Study Abroad Scholarship Application

University Honors Program Honors Study Abroad Scholarship

The University Honors Program encourages all students to seek a study abroad experience. Honors students may apply for an Honors Study Abroad Scholarship to help offset the costs of studying abroad.  These scholarships are for travel in the upcoming summer or for semester or year-long study abroad trips in the upcoming school year.

To further encourage students seeking funding, our scholarship application mirrors the Phi Kappa Phi Study Abroad Grant online application. A number of Honors Program students are eligible for the Phi Kappa Phi award, which does require a 3.75 GPA.  Students who meet this requirement are strongly encouraged to apply for the Phi Kappa Phi Study Abroad Grant at

The Honors Study Abroad Scholarship application form can be found here. (Please note: You must be logged in to MyGeorgiaSouthern to access and complete the form.)

Application materials for the Honors Study Abroad Scholarship include:

  • Completed electronic form
  • Two letters of recommendation from Georgia Southern faculty

Complete online applications and letters of recommendation are due by 5:00 p.m. on February 15, 2019.  Letters of recommendation should be submitted to the University Honors Program offices in Eidson House or sent via email by the letter-writer to Dr. Desiderio at 

PLEASE NOTE: It is strongly recommended that students request TWO COPIES of each letter of recommendation: one for the Honors Study Abroad Scholarship application and one for when they apply directly for the Phi Kappa Phi Study Abroad Grant (letters for Phi Kappa Phi are uploaded by the letter writer).

If you plan to apply for the Phi Kappa Phi Study Abroad Grant: Phi Kappa Phi requires transcripts and allows students to upload transcripts. Letters of Recommendation may also be uploaded or sent via mail directly to their offices. Students should check with their letters’ writers to find their preference and follow that preference.

If you have any questions about this application, please contact Dr. Francis Desiderio at
