Scholarship Guidelines

Scholarship disbursement is contingent upon participation in the specific IPD program to which the student has applied. If a student withdraws or is dismissed from their IPD study abroad program, their award may be canceled. The student is responsible for any balance due resulting from this loss of funding. Refer to the Withdrawal and Refund Policies for Northwestern-Sponsored Programs for more information.

Scholarship recipients are expected to uphold exemplary standards of conduct, submit regular entries to the IPD blog during their study abroad program, and submit a reflective essay to IPD upon completion of his or her program. Recipients are also expected to participate in information sessions, orientation, and other events to assist IPD with program recruitment and to aid future program participants. 

It is unlikely that students will receive multiple IPD scholarship awards. Students applying to two IPD programs will be considered for scholarships for both programs, but initial award amounts will be based on first choice program selection.
