An anonymous donor established the Guatemala Off-Campus Fund to support students pursuing the study of language and culture in Guatemala.
If you are considering studying in Guatemala for language credit, make sure to speak to faculty in the Spanish Department prior to applying for the Guatemala Off-Campus Scholarship.
If you are a Cornell student interested in pursuing the study of language and culture in Guatemala, the Guatemala Off-Campus Scholarship might be a good fit for you. The International Studies Oversight Committee (ISOC) determines if the Guatemala Off-Campus Fund is the appropriate funding source and the award amount based off of your scholarship application materials.
The ISOC considers the following criteria when determining your eligibility:
- You are a Cornell student interested in pursuing the study of language and culture in Guatemala
- You’ll study through an accredited program in Guatemala
You’ll submit a reflective essay, in the form of a letter to the donor, to the Office of International and Off-Campus Studies upon your return to campus.
You are not eligible if you are participating in an off-campus internship sponsored by the Berry Career Institute, Dimensions, or the Cornell Fellows program. You are not eligible if you have previously received a scholarship from the Guatemala Off-Campus Fund.
Make sure to review the registration process for an off-campus studies course. If you’ve already registered for an off-campus studies course, great! Now, you should apply for scholarships.
