PeruQuest Scholarship Application

PeruQuest Scholarship Application

“PeruQuest” is a scholarship supported international studies experience that is directly integrated with the College’s general studies program. Students can earn academic credit while developing global perspective and skills valued by employers and important for civic leadership.

This year there are a limited amount of partial scholarships available to be applied towards the travel costs. Tuition costs are separate (you must register for the Spring SOC 396 course or an Independent Study course). You are responsible for any remaining balance for your selected trip, additional spending money, gratuity, as well as the cost of tuition. You will be required to pay back all of the awarded scholarship money if you do not participate in the trip or if you are sent home during the trip.

Certain criteria will be used to evaluate applicants for PeruQuest, all students are encouraged to apply, as every student will be considered.
Scholarship Criteria Guidelines:
o Minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0
