Scholarship Opportunities

If you are enrolled at a Sullivan Foundation school (see list below), you can qualify for special partial tuition scholarships sponsored by the Algernon Sydney Sullivan Foundation. Scholarships range from $500-$2000 for 4-week programs or $500-$1000 for 2-week programs.   

Your university may also have Endowment Funds that could cover all of your tuition and some travel!  Contact krystal@sullivanfdn.org for more information.

Scholarships are limited and reviewed on a rolling admission basis.

How to Apply

On your application be sure to list your university and indicate you are part of the Sullivan Network.  Students in the Sullivan Network receive “Priority Review Status” during the selection process but don’t forget this process is competitive! Applications are assessed based on the quality of application, demonstration of commitment to community/service, and need.  A follow-up interview is also required.

Requirements

Sullivan Scholars are expected to take full advantage of the programs and bring their knowledge and experience back to their campus.  During the programs Sullivan Scholars blog about their experience to help others learn about social entrepreneurship and study abroad.

 

As a Sullivan Scholar, you are on your way to earning a Certificate in Social Entrepreneurship through Sullivan!   Created by the Algernon Sydney Sullivan Foundation and a Board of Advisors from renowned universities, the Sullivan SE Certificate develops students' entrepreneurship and leadership skills to prepare them to be change agents in their communities and professional careers. You can combine courses through Leadership exCHANGE with courses at your home campus to complete the minor.  Click here for more details.
