AIFS Ambassador Scholarships

AIFS is also offering 3 NCSAC Ambassador Scholarships (2 for $500 and 1 for $1,000) for the NCSAC Florence Spring 2024 program.

The student who receives the AIFS scholarship agrees to work with AIFS staff when on-location during the program to gather pictures and video clips to share their experience abroad with other students through AIFS and PCC social networking sites and to attend a study abroad info session upon their return.

Please see your study abroad coordinator for information on how to apply.


Students should apply to as many scholarships as they qualify for, not only for study abroad. Every scholarship has it’s own eligibility requirements, deadlines, application process. Do your research and stay organized.
