Students' scholarship applications will be reviewed in May for the fall semester and December for the spring semester. These are highly competitive scholarships and will only be granted to a select number of students applying to one of the aforementioned programs.
Students who are studying abroad for the academic year must apply for a GW scholarship for each semester they are abroad. If you are awarded a scholarship in the fall semester it does not automatically transfer to the spring, you will need to reapply for the scholarship in the spring semester.
