The School of Integrative Studies (SIS) Experiential Learning (EL) Scholarship is open to George Mason University students enrolled in Integrative Studies or Environmental Sustainability Studies degrees and registered to participate in an EL program such as an Alternative Break, Field Studies Course, Mason Study Abroad or other EL experience with travel and/or academic costs associated during the spring, summer, fall or winter semesters.
Scholarship awards range from approximately $250 to $500 and vary based on the expense of program and strength of the student's application. Scholarships are need- and merit-based. Each applicant is carefully considered by the School of Integrative Studies Awards Committee. The Committee looks for applicants who have a strong academic record, demonstrate financial need, and are passionate about their Experiential Learning program. Applicants are encouraged to share special circumstances, personal stories, or any other connections that demonstrate why and how the student will benefit from their chosen program and the scholarship award.
Scholarship awards are designed to supplement a student's funds during their chosen program.
Scholarships will not be disbursed to students who cancel their participation in a program or if the program is cancelled. Students who withdraw from their program after disbursement are required to repay the scholarship.
