There are a number of scholarships available exclusively to PES students.


Applications open for this scholarship every fall and spring.

The Fund the Gap Scholarship is intended to:

  • increase the number of PES students participating in semester-long study abroad programs
  • make study abroad more accessible to PES students who wouldn’t otherwise participate by making the cost of a program the same as or close to the cost of attendance on campus

The Fund the Gap Scholarship is granted based on the strength of a student’s essay and expressed interest in study abroad opportunities. Preference will be given to applicants with demonstrated financial need.

At this time, the Fund the Gap Scholarship has been suspended as University of Minnesota, State, and Federal guidelines are updated in response to COVID-19.
