Eligibility requirements

If you are a Cornell student planning to pursue the study of language and culture in Guatemala, you may be eligible for the Guatemala Off-Campus Scholarship. 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 pursuing the study of language and culture in Guatemala through an accredited program

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.
