There will be one ISA GO Scholarship awarded per year.

Castañeda Partnership Scholarship

These merit and financial need-based scholarships assist semester students from affiliated universities with the expenses of studying abroad. Applicants for this scholarship must complete the ISA Budget and Funding Form in order to exhibit financial need.
In memory of Dr. Castañeda, who immigrated to the United States from Mexico with his family when he was in the sixth grade. Through immersion, he quickly gained fluency in English and excelled in school. He continued to educate himself and eventually earned his B.A., M.A. and Ph.D. degrees. 
Recipients of this scholarship will have the opportunity to participate in the Correspondent Internship, which offers the recipient the chance to take photos and add content to the ISA Student Blog as a Castañeda Correspondent. 

Diversity Scholarship

ISA offers the ISA Diversity Scholarship with the goal of bringing the benefits of a global education to historically underserved student populations. This includes, but is not limited to, students identifying as underrepresented races, ethnic origins, sexual orientations, gender identities, as well as first generation college students and those with accessibility needs. 

Summer Pathways Scholarship

These merit and financial need-based summer term scholarships are dedicated to the memory of Michaela Farnum, a very involved Seattle University student who worked with various youth and campus organizations. Applicants for this scholarship must complete the ISA Budget and Funding Form in order to exhibit financial need.
