Enlight Scholarship for Indonesia Summer Immersion Internship

About the Enlight Scholarship

The Enlight Scholarship can be applied to the 2018 Indonesia Summer Internship in Indonesia. This is both a merit and need-based scholarship. Award amounts will be determined based on the student’s qualifications for the program and financial need.

  • Requirements: Must be at least 18 years old, currently enrolled in a North American college or university, and applying to VIA’s 2018 Indonesia Summer Immersion Internship with VIA in Indonesia.
  • Amount: Partial to full coverage of program cost, depending on applicant merit, program length, and financial need
  • Deadline(s): Scholarship applications are due December 1, 2017 for priority consideration.
  • Application Process: Students must be nominated or receive a recommendation from a professor. Professors can nominate a student before the student starts their application (see below for details). If a student submits their application first, they will be prompted to share a link to the recommendation form with their professor.
  • Application Tip: The scholarship application is included in the Indonesia Summer Immersion Internship application form. You can start the application even if you haven’t received a nomination – just be prepared to input the name and email address of the person you are requesting a letter of recommendation from, and send the recommendation form to your professor after you submit your application.
