Stipends are available to help support students with financial need who want to participate in an IPSL Global Engagement summer study abroad program in Peru, Vietnam, or Greece during Summer 2024. Selection for a stipend does not guarantee registration in any IPSL program and recipients must apply and be accepted separately into the program. Applicants will be strongly encouraged to engage in local service projects with the Dumke Center for Civic Engagement either prior to departure, upon return, or both. Awards will be based primarily on need as determined by FAFSA and ranging from $1,500–$3,500.


To be eligible for the IPSL stipend, you must:

  • Be a current degree-seeking Westminster University undergraduate student in good academic standing.
  • Have no history of conduct violations, suspensions, or other serious disciplinary violations on campus.
  • Have demonstrated financial need as determined by FAFSA; applicants who did not file a FAFSA this year should address their financial need in question #4 of the application.
  • Be planning to enroll in an IPSL program in Peru, Vietnam, or Greece for a minimum of 4 weeks starting in May, June, or July 2024.
  • Complete at least 10 community service hours per week during the program and a minimum of 3 credit hours.

Preference is given to applicants who will return to campus full-time for Fall 2024 and Spring 2025 and to applicants who have not participated in a previous May Term Study Experience or study abroad program at the undergraduate level.


The application deadline has been extended to March 31, 2024.
