Scholarships:Apply for the Study Abroad Program of Your Choice

MEI Academic Scholarships

At MEI, we recognize that traveling abroad can be expensive – especially on a student budget! Additionally, because we want exceptional students on our study abroad programs, we’ve set up a number of academic scholarship opportunities that students can apply for to help make the program of their choice a reality.

How to Apply

Applying for an MEI scholarship is easy and can be done in three simple steps. Our goal is to let you know the amount we can award you as soon as possible. If you have an average of 80% (A-) or higher, then you’re eligible to apply!

Step 1

Go to > Scholarships and click on the MEI scholarship you would like to apply for. Fill out the form asking for your name, phone number, email, city, and school to begin the application process. You will receive an automated response that will prompt you to take the next step!

Step 2

The automated response will ask you to scan and send in a series of documents, including:

  1. Your most recent report card
  2. Your high school transcript (to date)
  3. A list of academic awards and achievements
  4. A list of extracurricular activities and involvement
  5. A short, 350-word response expressing why you wish to participate in an MEI program. Include how you would benefit emotionally, academically and personally.

Step 3

The MEI leadership team will asses your application and reply to you as soon as possible. You will receive an email detailing your scholarship earnings and a notice indicating that you have two weeks to register for the program, if you haven’t already, before the scholarship offer expires. The scholarship amount will be subtracted from your first invoice!

Depending on where our one and two credit summer programs travel to and for how long, the tuition for MEI summer programs varies. As a result, Summer Scholarships change from year to year, and are sometimes dependent on enrolment. Generally speaking, when the opportunity for a Summer Scholarship arises, students can earn up to $1,500 to use toward the cost of tuition.

Are you a returning MEI student – a repeat? Maybe even a ‘threepeat’? If so, then you are automatically eligible for an Alumni Scholarship of up to $1,000 to use toward the cost of tuition. Unlike other MEI scholarships, you are not required to hand in a scholarship package – we will award an amount based on your academic results from your previous MEI program, as well as an endorsement from your former MEI teachers. Good luck, and thanks for joining us again.
