Freeman Awards for Study in Asia re-launched!
With generous funding from the Freeman Foundation, the Institute of International Education (IIE) will re-launch the Freeman-ASIA Program for two academic years, beginning in Summer 2011.
Freeman-ASIA (Freeman Awards for Study in Asia) is designed to support American undergraduates with demonstrated financial need who are planning to study overseas in East or Southeast Asia. The program’s goal is to increase the number of Americans with first-hand exposure to and understanding of Asia and its peoples and cultures.
Award recipients are required to share their experiences with their home campuses or communities to encourage study abroad by others and fulfill the program's goal of increasing understanding of Asia in the United States.
From 2001 to 2009, Freeman-ASIA supported over 4,000 U.S. undergraduates from more than 600 institutions with their study abroad plans in East and Southeast Asia.
Students interested in applying for this funding opportunity should contact the GT Campus Representative, Rebecca Miller, in the Office of International Education for assistance with the application process.
This scholarship could be used towards the GT China Summer Program or any summer program in Asia that is at least 8 weeks in length. It can also be used toward one of the many GT Exchange Programs for students wishing to spend a full semester or year on exchange in Asia.
