2020 GLA Merit Scholarships

Turn your good grades into a scholarship toward spring or summer travel with GLA!

If you apply and receive a Merit Scholarship using the form below, use the scholarship code to enroll in a Global Leadership Adventures program and save up to $300 on program tuition.

To apply, simply submit a picture of your most recent report card using the form below. Students should have at least a 3.0 GPA or roughly a B-grade average across classes to be eligible.

Your application will be reviewed shortly after submission and you will receive notification by email of your Merit Scholarship approval status, and the accompanying scholarship amount and redemption codes, within a couple of days of submission. You will have two weeks upon receiving notification of your scholarship to redeem it.

If you aren’t eligible for the Merit Scholarship or maybe your GPA isn’t where you’d like to be at the moment, don’t worry! We would still love to have you join us on a Global Leadership Adventures student travel & volunteer program this summer. Check out our grant-based scholarship application for an alternative financial aid resource.

Contact us directly if you have any questions or need any assistance applying for the Merit Scholarship. You can also see scholarship terms & conditions at the bottom of the page for more  details.
