The Rainbow Scholarship is offered up to $5,000 per semester and is not limited to specific programs, destinations, or fields of study. FEA awards funds to students planning to study abroad on academically rigorous programs with a strong preference for underrepresented students. The Rainbow Scholarship is awarded to a deserving LGBTQ student who aims to participate in an education abroad program. Thanks to your support, this year FEA will be able to award one Rainbow Scholarship. 

To apply for the Rainbow Scholarship students must apply for the general FEA scholarship and indicate in their application that they would also like to be considered for the Rainbow Scholarship. The deadline for the Rainbow scholarship applications is January 17, 2014. A list of frequently asked questions can be found at
