The Flywire Charitable Foundation is inviting students to apply for their Academic Scholarship for the 2022 academic year. The scholarship will cover undergraduate and postgraduate studies, in ANY major, for studies in any country.

Flywire will be awarding 8 scholarships, to the value of $5 000 USD each, across the following themes:

  • Social Justice: This is regarding issues such as anti-LGBTQ+ legislation, policing, sexism, religious persecution, sexual violence, racism, and other issues. These issues dominated the world news this past year with the need for a significant social justice reform increasing. The purpose of scholarships for Social Justice is to equip future leaders who aim to work towards a society where racism, systemic biases, violence, and other acts of intolerance are abolished.
  • Global Health: Owing to the pandemic, many communities around the world are in need of innovative approaches to improve global health and overcome challenges. The purpose of scholarships for Global Heath is to aid candidates who have a drive and commitment to better the health and quality of life of people across the world.
  • Global Citizenship: The pandemic has taught humanity the importance of uplifting society whilst also addressing social, environmental, political, and economic issues. Global citizenship focuses on the many challenges we have in our society, from climate change and sustainability to income inequality. The purpose of scholarships for Global Citizenship is to aid individuals who embody and represent what it is to be a global citizen to make a positive impact on all aspects of society, from small communities to countries.
  • Environmental Sustainability: Planet Earth is in danger of ongoing threats to environmental health which continue to endanger the livelihood of all who live on this planet. The purpose of scholarships for Environmental Sustainability is to provide assistance to students who are actively fighting climate change and other risks to our planet in order to create a more sustainable environment for all future generations.
