Studying abroad can reshape how you understand and think about the world.
Travel and cultural immersion broadens perspectives and bridges gaps of understanding between people from different cultures and backgrounds.
As citizens of a world that is more interconnected every day, we are challenged to live, learn and love across many dimensions of human diversity. Immersing yourself in another way of life helps you understand and appreciate others while gaining a more sophisticated perspective of your own culture.
With this idea in mind, the Greg Orwig Cultural Immersion Scholarship is designed to help one student who would like to broaden his or her perspective by studying abroad.
To apply for this scholarship, you must be a current undergraduate student at a 4-year university. Please write about your passion for cultural immersion, the country you’d like to travel to, and why you believe a study abroad experience in that country would help you grow as a person and citizen of the world.
Why do you have a passion for cultural immersion? What country would you like to study abroad in? Why do you believe a study abroad experience in this country would help you grow as a person and citizen of the world?

The winner will be publicly announced on Oct 1, 2021. Prior to the announcement date, we may contact finalists with additional questions about their application. We will work with donors to review all applications according to the scholarship criteria. Winners will be chosen based on the merit of their application.
Award checks will be sent to the financial aid office of the winner's academic institution in their name to be applied to their tuition, and in the name of their institution (depending on the school's requirements). If the award is for a qualified educational non-tuition expense, we will work with the winner directly to distribute the award and make sure it goes towards qualified expenses.
Before we award the scholarship, the winner will be required to confirm their academic enrollment status. Depending on the circumstances, verification of Student ID and/or their most recent transcript will be required.
