* Students who participate in the GIFT Courses marked with an asterisk will receive a guaranteed scholarship of up to $500. Any student participating in a GIFT Course who meets the minimum GPA requirement of 3.0 is eligible to apply for an additional Learning Abroad Scholarship, even if they receive a guaranteed GIFT scholarship. Scholarship applications will be distributed to students after the courses begin. Students who wish to study abroad in a location in which Gannon does not have a partner university may choose to study abroad through an Affiliate Provider. Students will not be able to use their Gannon scholarships or financial aid to offset the cost of the program, and will pay their tuition directly to the provider. However, student loans, and state and federal financial aid may be applied to Affiliate programs. Affiliates include: • American Institute for Foreign Study (AIFS) • CIS Abroad • Spanish Studies Abroad • GlobaLinks • Arcadia University Students participating in Affiliate Programs who meet the minimum GPA requirement of 3.0 are eligible to apply for an additional Learning Abroad Scholarship. Studying abroad is more than just paying to study outside the United States. It is learning about new traditions and cultures through cultural immersion, exploring your academic field in another country, and becoming a global citizen. Imagine studying marine biology in the Bahamas, observing wildlife in their natural habitat at Yellowstone National Park, spending an entire semester in one of Australia’s major cities, teaching English to students in Thailand, or wandering the ancient ruins of Rome’s coliseum and Roman Forum during a semester in Italy. With Gannon, your possibilities abroad are endless. Students interested in participating in Learning Abroad programs should visit www.gannon. edu/learningabroad to learn more about all of Gannon’s offerings, fill out an interest form and send it to, or visit the office located on the 3rd Floor of Beyer Hall, Office 305D.

Service Learning When community service is conducted in an academic context, such as a college course or research project, it is called service-learning. Many Gannon professors include service-learning assignments so that students can get hands-on experience that translates classroom lessons into “real world” settings. Students receive the benefit of rigorous and realistic challenges, while at the same time, community organizations receive the tangible benefits of their work. For example, Gannon Nursing students conduct health screenings for residents of downtown
