GEO staff will help guide you through the process.
Create a profile online and start working on your application. Apply for scholarships and submit required documents. Once you have been accepted, you will be asked to commit and complete a pre-departure orientation.
Finding funding for your study abroad excursion can seem challenging, however, not impossible. There are a number of resources at your disposal. It is important to research carefully and EARLY to secure appropriate funding. Remember, the more you apply, the greater your chances are for funding your study abroad experience. There are four categories: GEO Scholarships, Mason Scholarships, Fellowships, and External Scholarships.
The GEO Peer Advisor and Global Envoy Program (PAGE Program) is ideal for study abroad alumnae and alumni with excellent communication skills. Students who wish to apply for the PAGE Program are passionate about their study abroad experience and eager to share their stories. Applications are due December 6, 2019. Learn more: PAGE Program.

Are you planning international travel that is university-sponsored or related but is not part of a GEO study abroad program? If so, register your travel with MasonGPS! Students pursuing independently arranged international educational travel experiences, such as internships, independent study, service learning, or dissertation research, must register their travel through this system. This ensures adequate insurance protection, timely notification, and institutional support in the event of a travel emergency or international crisis.
