INTRODUCTION: When considering joining one of our programs we encourage you to consider the cost of your attendance as an investment. Not simply as part of your academic education, but in shaping the person you are. We understand the cost of that investment is substantial, so for those who show a great potential to succeed and grow from traveling with us, yet would otherwise be unable to attend without financial assistance, we welcome you to apply for financial assistance. As funds are limited we do request that only those that truly need assistance request it. The total amount of funds available for any given program will vary and there are programs where no funding is available.
APPLICATION & CONFIRMATION TIMELINE
We accept scholarship applications on a rolling basis and will endeavor to respond within 30 days to each individual application. Once a scholarship determination has been accepted, the applicant will need to submit an official program enrollment application along with a deposit.
DETAIL OF APPLICATION RESPONSE & DETERMINATION
Upon receiving a completed scholarship application, ActionQuest/GoBeyond will offer the following choices to the applicant:
Option 1 (Accept) – The applicant accepts the scholarship award as offered. The applicant must then proceed to submit the official enrollment application within 15 days along with the $750-$1500 deposit needed to confirm and reserve the space. The applicant will be given a unique scholarship code to be used during the enrollment application to confirm the scholarship award.
Option 2 (Deny & Review) – The applicant denies the scholarship award as offered and chooses to wait for another review. The application will be placed on hold until AQ/GB re-reviews the application, usually 30, 60 or 90 days from initial submission. It should be noted that previous scholarship offers may not be available at the time of re-review. Available scholarship offers may increase or decrease dependent upon current enrollment, remaining scholarship funding, etc.
Please list the top three trips you are interested in joining. As has been mentioned, the total amount of funds available for any given program will vary. There are programs where funding is not available, so it is important to know which trips you are interested in and able to join.
