Student Ambassador Scholarship Program

Abbey Road Programs is delighted to present a variety of full and partial tuition paid merit-based scholarships to our summer programs for high school students through our Student Ambassador Scholarship Program. Student Ambassadors are motivated students that demonstrate a commitment to learning that extends throughout the school year as demonstrated through their G.P.A, school and community involvement, personal statements and recommendations. The program includes Study Abroad Scholarships for Italy, France and Spain, Leadership Scholarships and Community Service Scholarships. A complete list of summer 2012 scholarship opportunities can be found below along with links to the Scholarship Application.

Overview and Objectives
The Abbey Road Student Ambassador Scholarship Program supports the Abbey Road Programs mission of facilitating cross-cultural understanding, personal growth and academic enrichment of high school aged youth in its summer programs by:
• Increasing awareness of and respect for cultural differences by supporting student petitions to study abroad in a foreign country
• Developing pre-college and leadership skills by supporting student petitions to attend U.S. college preparatory programs
• Providing opportunities for experiential learning through daily on-site instruction
• Fostering relationships with foreign communities through experiential daily activities
• Promoting the importance of summer enrichment through Student Ambassador blogs, essays and interviews
• Encouraging Student Ambassadors to promote scholarship program awareness by acting as references for prospective families and schools

Applicants should consider these objectives when applying to the Student Ambassador Scholarship Program and should be prepared to explain in their personal statement how their prior academic and extracurricular achievements qualify them as a potential Ambassador of Abbey Road.

Eligibility and Ambassador Activities
Student Ambassador Fellowships and Scholarships are merit-based and any eligible student in good academic standing is encouraged to apply.
