Emerge Scholarship for International Students (USA)
Deadline: 6 January 2012
The European Union offers student scholarships to students of any nationality aiming to study at the Master on Work, Organizational and Personnel Psychology, USA. Emerge’s mission is to provide scholarships to women whose educations have been interrupted, who have overcome significant obstacles, and who give back to their communities.
The 2011 Annual Scholarship Luncheon was held on March 2, 2011 at The Retreat at Perimeter Summit and is was a huge success. We honored ten amazing women and raised nearly $20,000 to empower the lives of even more women through education. The Emerge Scholarships Inc. (Emerge) scholarship program has awarded nearly a quarter of a million dollars in scholarships since its founding year, 2001. The selection committee is focused on identifying special women – non- traditional students whose education was delayed or interrupted,individuals with a vision to succeed regardless of any obstacles that life has put in their way. They are especially interested in recognizing women who give back to their communities and whose goals and desires for education align with their passions.Additionally, preference is given to women who are pursuing their educational endeavors in the state of Georgia.This may include women who are returning to school after a hiatus, changing careers, seeking advancement in their career or work life, and stay-at-home moms entering the work place and in need of additional education/training.This scholarship is not intended for recent high school graduates or women who are eligible for or who have already received other significant financial aid.
Scholarship applicants must be accepted into a program of study at an educational institution, as evidenced by a proof of acceptance – either an acceptance letter OR a current school transcript.

The money provided by the Emerge scholarship may only be used to pay for tuition and fees at the educational institution. The scholarship check will be made out directly to the institution with instructions to only apply the funds to the student’s current account to pay for school tuition and fees. If awarded, your scholarship funds will be available as of March 2012 and may be paid towards tuition, books and fees for Fall 2011 through Fall 2016, or until the full scholarship funds are used. The exact amount of each scholarship and the total number of scholarships to be awarded will vary from year to year (10 scholarships were awarded in 2011).
