Guidelines for your Scholarship Search

  • Start your research early
  • Apply early
  • Be sure to check the eligibility guidelines of the specific scholarship before applying
  • In some instances, you do not have to be accepted into a study abroad program at the time of the scholarship application
  • Be sure to check the deadlines - they can vary between scholarships
  • If you are in need of a Letter of Recommendation, please give your professor 3 weeks of advance notice
  • Never pay for a scholarship
  • Visit the Center for Student Success Writers' Studio; students from any major can sign up for a free, 30 minute, one-on-one session with a peer writing consultant. Peer writing consultants are fellow SUNY New Paltz students who are trained to help you identify your strengths and work toward goals for your academic writing assignments including your application to study abroad.


If you have any specific questions about any of the scholarships, please contact Bianca Sylvain in the Center for International Programs
