A Freeman-ASIA Award provides need-based funding to assist the recipient with the cost of the study abroad program and related expenses, including airfare, basic living costs, local transportation, books, etc.

Grant amounts are:

Summer Award up to $3,000
Semester/Quarter Award up to $5,000
Academic Year Award up to $7,000

Freeman-ASIA Award funds may be adjusted should the recipient receive additional financial assistance not reported at the time of application.

Award funds are distributed to the award recipient's checking account via Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) in one lump sum for summer and semester awards and in two installments for academic year awards.

Students may apply for institutional/program-based Freeman Foundation grants and the Freeman-ASIA Awards simultaneously, but may only accept one Freeman-sponsored grant per proposed study abroad term should the student receive multiple offers.
