FEA will award $5,000 scholarships to students who study abroad for one semester. Students who study abroad for two semesters will receive $10,000. Students who study abroad for other lengths of time will receive a pro-rated amount.  About 40 scholarships are awarded, a number largely dependent on FEA fundraising.
