1.       Meet the Minimum Requirements and Identify Research Projects

EuroScholars requires students to have a minimum of a 3.4 GPA. Exceptions to this minimum requirement are rarely made, and you should contact ISA before moving forward with an application if you do not current meet it.

You should also have at least two research projects of interest identified on the EuroScholas.eu website. You should be qualified to participate in these projects based on completed coursework and/or specific research experience in the field.


2.
  Schedule a Phone Call with ISA To Review Expectations

EuroScholars is a nuanced and unique program, and ISA wants to make sure you are fully informed before you move forward with committing to an application. Therefore, if you meet the requirements above and are ready to learn more, please contact ISA to schedule an approximately 30 minute phone call to review expectations of the application process and the program as a whole.


3.
  Prepare Application

In order to be considered for the EuroScholars program, you must provide the following:
  • Online Application
  • One official college transcript. If you have attended more than one university, submit one official transcript from each university attended. Unofficial transcripts are not accepted.
  • ISA Application Supplement.

For the online application you will need to have on hand:

  • Your passport number (if you already have one)
  • Your current GPA
  • Titles and grades of relevant language courses you have already taken

4.
  Check due dates and the ISA- EuroScholars Cancellation Policy

Applications should be submitted as soon as possible. ISA accepts applications on a rolling basis. Check the final application due date for the program of your choice, and submit your application accordingly. Due to high enrollment, ISA recommends submitting an application at least one to two months before the application due date. Students who have not paid in full by the final forms and payment due date and payment due date are subject to a late fee of $150.

Application and final forms and payment due dates are provided on our website.

Before you continue, please review the ISA cancellation policy:

ISA-EUROSCHOLARS CANCELLATION POLICY

This policy applies to all cancellations, regardless of the reason. Your request to withdraw and receive a refund must be made in writing to ISA. The deposit is non-refundable once your application has been submitted. However, if your application is denied due to eligibility requirements, your deposit will be fully refunded. Alternative payment arrangements (financial aid, payment plans, etc.) do not exempt you from this policy.

  1. If you withdraw from the program on or before the original payment due date, you are liable for the $200 application deposit.
  2. If you withdraw 1-9 days after the original payment due date, you are liable for $750 plus costs incurred by ISA on your behalf.
  3. If you withdraw 10-20 days after the original payment due date, you are liable for $1,250 plus costs incurred by ISA on your behalf.
  4. If you withdraw 21 or more days after the original payment due date but prior to the final deadline for withdrawal, you are liable for $1,750 plus costs incurred by ISA on your behalf.
  5. The final deadline to withdraw from any ISA program is 14 days prior to the start date of the program. If you withdraw after this deadline, regardless of the reason for withdrawal, you are not eligible for any refund.

Any fees assessed to ISA by EuroScholars and/or the host institution following a student’s withdrawal will be considered costs incurred.

Signing and returning all documents in your student portal is your responsibility. If you fail to return the documents and/or complete them in a satisfactory manner after repeated notification (email or call), you will be deemed withdrawn and will not be eligible for any refund.

Program dates will be arranged by the program participant and host institution staff/faculty on an individual basis following a student’s acceptance. The host institution reserves the right to adjust program dates to accommodate host university calendar changes, and the program participant is solely responsible for airline fare increases or ticket change fees incurred as a result.

Prices and dates are subject to change without notice.



5.
  Submit Application to ISA

ISA will receive your online application as soon as you complete the process and submit all necessary details.

You can then proceed with sending your remaining application materials to the ISA office. They do not need to be sent all together and can arrive piecemeal. Documents should be sent to the ISA – EuroScholars Program Manager, Rebecca Anderson, at randerson@studiesabroad.com or mailed to our ISA Austin office:
ISA-Attn: Rebecca Anderson
1112 W. Ben White Blvd.
Austin, TX 78704
U.S.A.

Your application will be compiled in our office and provided to EuroScholars for their review. Application processing time is approximately 2-3 weeks. You will be notified of your status as soon as possible, most likely via email. Most applicants will have a Skype call with the Research Project Supervisor before formal acceptance is finalized.


Visa Requirements:

EuroScholars program countries vary greatly in their visa requirements for students. All EuroScholars participants must obtain a student visa, with the exception of students who are EU citizens, with a valid passport from their country of citizenship, and who are studying in an EU member state. The application process for a student visa also varies by country. Depending on the foreign consulate, you will either have to apply for the visa in person, via an online application, or by mailing in all application materials. Participants must work with their EuroScholars host institution in order to obtain the necessary documentation for their visa application. All visa fees and associated costs are the responsibility of the student.
