MEI Academic Scholarships

At MEI, we recognize that traveling abroad can be expensive—especially on a student budget! Because we want exceptional students on our study abroad programs, we’ve set up a number of academic scholarship opportunities that students can apply for to help make the program of their choice a reality.

If you have an average of 80% or higher (in the courses pertinent to your program), then you’re eligible to apply!
