Our Students: Scholarship Open


FIE London Fall 2019 and Spring 2020 students are eligible to apply for the Association of American Study Abroad Programmes United Kingdom (AASAP/UK) Lord Acton Memorial scholarship. The £1000 scholarship is available to study abroad students coming to the UK with a 3.0 GPA. Read more about the deadline, submission, and eligibility requirements on the AASAP/UK scholarship web page.

From the Association of American Study Abroad Programmes United Kingdom (AASAP/UK) Website:

In 2012 AASAP/UK launched the Lord Acton Memorial Scholarship for study abroad students coming to the UK. Lord Acton was AASAP/UK’s first Honorary President, serving in this capacity from 2006 until his untimely death in 2010. His professional career included work as a banker, barrister, human rights campaigner, writer, and politician. He sat in the House of Lords as both a life and hereditary peer on the Labour benches. He was a champion of international educational and cultural exchange, and offered invaluable assistance and guidance to AASAP/UK.



The purpose of the scholarship is to provide a deserving study abroad student with financial support to pursue academic study in the United Kingdom. By offering the scholarship, AASAP/UK is fulfilling one of its purposes – the promotion and support of academic standards. The merit-based scholarship will be awarded to the applicant who demonstrates an understanding and appreciation of the value of an international educational experience and who agrees to share with AASAP/UK members the ways in which the scholarship has helped to fulfil their academic and personal ambitions. The award will be £1,000 for a semester or full year abroad.

The winning student will be required to attend an AASAP/UK meeting to meet the membership, receive the award, and give a short presentation on the goals and objectives that will be made possible through this financial support. In addition, the scholarship recipient must provide a final written reflection on the impact of the scholarship on their study abroad experience, which will be uploaded to the Association website.

Eligibility Requirements for candidates:

a. Enrolment in full-time education

b. Undergraduate status at a university or college based in the United States

c. Acceptance on a study abroad programme offered by an AASAP/UK FULL OR ASSOCIATE member with a minimum length of one semester/term. See for a list of current members

d. Minimum cumulative 3.00 GPA

e. Willingness to share their experiences abroad with the AASAP/UK community in person at the beginning and through a reflective written piece at the end of their study abroad experience.
