Scholarship Service Requirements
Students who receive a scholarship from the GSU Study Abroad Programs Office are responsible for service requirements upon their return from study abroad. The service component of the scholarship you receive is a way to “pay it forward” by sharing your study abroad experience with students here at GSU. Please click on the tab for the scholarship you received for your study abroad for instructions on how to complete your service requirements.
Failure to complete your study abroad scholarship service requirements by the deadline listed below will result in a hold on your student account and you will be unable to register for classes, apply for graduation, receive your diploma or request transcripts. For questions about your Study Abroad Scholarship Service Requirements, please contact Emily Caskey (firstname.lastname@example.org).
