To apply for a short-term abroad grant, a student must have made a deposit for his or her trip with the tour operator and must complete the grant application request. In the event that a student cancels his or her trip after the refund deadline date, the student must repay the grant to the College. (Paperwork to this effect must be signed as a part of the grant application.) Please note that funds will be disbursed 45 days prior to departure as the final installment payment for the trip. Funds are paid to student's account with the tour operator and are not paid to the student directly. For more information, please contact the Center for Global Engagement at 407.708.2907, or email Kevin Konecny. You can download the grant application process here.
Additional funding opportunities are available through external agencies and organizations. These opportunities are not affiliated with Seminole State and should be explored independently.
