Travel-Study Grant Application
Ramsey Scholars are eligible to apply for travel-study grants totaling up to $3,000. These grants may be used to participate in UGA or non-UGA study abroad programs, intensive language programs, research, internships, or public service projects. Although Ramsey Scholars typically use these grants in their post-second and post-third year summers, they can be combined with the regular semester stipend and used to study abroad at any time during the academic year. Ramseys share their travel-study experiences with each other at their fall retreat, presenting reports and slideshows that highlight the significance of their travels and enrich the education of their peers.
Ramseys should discuss the academic merit and viability of their travel-study plans with the Scholarships Coordinator before submitting a formal grant request.
For fall travel: June 15
Please follow the procedures as outlined within the application forms and the Travel Grant Workshop.
As of August 2015, UGA and OIE work exclusively with CISI (Cultural Insurance Services International) for travel insurance. You can self-enroll through CISI’s website. Instructions and coverage information are linked below.
Upon completion of travel-study, you are required to submit a 300-500 word report (along with three or four optional photographs) and to make a brief presentation to the Ramseys during the fall retreat. These reports and photographs should be submitted through the Honors Network to your online profile. Travel reports must be posted within 90 days of your return.
Note: The University of Georgia's Office of International Education has an extensive database of UGA and other universities' study/work abroad programs
