Foundation for Global Scholars

The Foundation for Global Scholars (formally the Foundation for Asia Pacific Education) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization located in Denver, Colorado whose mission is to create global citizens and leaders by assisting students in achieving their personal and professional goals of obtaining cultural and academic experiences throughout the world.

  • We believe international education experiences help to prepare students to become global-minded citizens, broad thinkers and problem solvers with an international perspective;
  • We believe in the worth of every student and that each one deserves an opportunity to expand horizons though international exploration;
  • We believe students, especially those from underrepresented populations, will greatly benefit from outside financial support, such as a scholarship, to participate in an international education experience.

The Foundation will support this mission by awarding scholarships to help enable students to obtain an international experience. Students who are from underrepresented populations in international education are a priority.

We show our commitment to these core values by awarding scholarships to help students who may otherwise be unable to have an affordable international experience such as our focus on assisting underrepresented students. Underrepresented may include but is not limited to:

  • students from low income families;
  • ethnic backgrounds;
  • academic majors;
  • students with mobility impairments;
  • Rocky Mountain geographic region; or
  • 1st generation college students

The Foundation seeks support of its mission through financial and other contributions from individuals (such as alumni and professionals) and organizations that will ultimately see value in supporting education abroad, both for their own objectives and the world in general.

At the time of applying for any of the Foundation scholarships, you must be enrolled in a North American college or university where transfer credit from an academic program abroad will be applied to your degree being earned. 

You must be a US or Canadian citizen.
