  • Gannon University Learning Abroad Scholarship Program

    Gannon University is committed to providing students with enhanced academic opportunities that will ensure global awareness and multicultural appreciation. In order to encourage students to study abroad, the Office of Learning Abroad and International Academic Programs awards scholarships to eligible undergraduate students based on merit and/or need who will be participating in any credit-bearing opportunities offered by the Office.

    Students must meet the minimum Grade Point Average requirement of 3.0 to be eligible for a Learning Abroad Scholarship.

    The amount awarded is dependent on the applicant pool, available funding, and the duration of the intended program. Students who have enrolled in GIFT Courses or who are planning a semester or summer abroad will receive information on applying for a Learning Abroad Scholarship directly from the Director of Learning Abroad and International Academic Programs.
