In previous years, the Takis Chrysanthou Honored Scholar program has been granted to one student each semester that is studying in Cyprus. However, this semester the award will be granted to 100 students! This award is granted to qualifying students this Spring in the amount of $1,500 to those who are studying around the globe through the Global Learning Semesters (GLS) Study Abroad Program. This award can be used toward the fees associated with studying abroad through the GLS program.
The Takis Chrysanthou honored scholar award is granted on a merit basis to students with a GPA of 3.5 or higher. To receive this scholarship students must have first been accepted into a semester-long study abroad program through GLS and send in the following by July 15 to apply for the Spring semester award:
• A copy of their latest FASFA
• Other expected financial aid sources
• An essay of 600 words or less based upon the contribution the student expects to make toward the group trip experience
If you are studying abroad through GLS and would like to apply for this award, you can find more information on the Takis Chrysanthou honored scholar award here.
