Bruce W. Mesara Study Abroad Airfare Scholarship

The Mesara Airfare Scholarship is intended to help select Pell Grant-eligible students going on WMU Study Abroad programs (of 3 or more credits) purchase plane tickets prior to waiting for the disbursement of other study abroad scholarship funding. There is no formal application process; instead, recipients are chosen from a list of Pell Grant students with high financial need who have applied for and been accepted to participate in a WMU study abroad program. These students will be sent a letter indicating that they have been awarded the scholarship. If they choose to accept the award, they will be given a short-term loan-authorization letter for $1000 from WMU Study Abroad, which will be repaid by WMU SA during the study abroad term.
