Studying abroad is a unique, life-changing experience and we want as many students as possible to have this opportunity. Here at Expanish, we provide high-quality study abroad support services at the most economical price for our students. One of the factors that makes our programs so cost-effective is that we provide completely customizable experiences, so students only pay for the services they need.
Expanish established these scholarships with the intent to increase participation of diverse and underrepresented students in study abroad. Our scholarships are open to: students of color, STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) majors, LGBTQ+ students, first-generation students, community college students, and students with disabilities.
We strongly encourage all prospective students to apply for our scholarships.
As part of our commitment to increase study abroad opportunities and make the experience more accesible to all groups, Expanish is proud to offer 5 US$ 1,000 scholarships to be used to help students cover costs for Expanish programs in either Barcelona or Buenos Aires.
