The Flywire Charitable Foundation 2023 scholarships are available to students studying in the following academic fields:
- Social Justice
The Social Justice Scholarship honors students who are passionate about addressing systemic inequalities and promoting social justice. As social justice issues, including but not limited to policing, anti-LGBTQ+ legislation, religious persecution, sexism, racism, and sexual violence continue to dominate the world news, the need for significant social justice reform has only increased. These scholarships will be awarded to tomorrow’s leaders who are committed to eradicating racism, violence, systemic biases, and other acts of intolerance.
- Global Health
The Global Health Scholarship recognizes students who are committed to promoting health and well-being on a global scale. It aims to support students who are dedicated to addressing health disparities and improving access to healthcare in underprivileged communities. Recipients of this scholarship are expected to use their education and skills to advance the cause of global health and promote healthcare equity. They may also be expected to engage in research and advocacy to address global health challenges and develop innovative solutions to improve health outcomes around the world.
- Global Citizenship
The Global Citizenship Scholarship recognizes students who are committed to promoting global citizenship and cultural understanding around the world. As global conflicts have escalated across the world stage, it is now more important than ever to elevate humanity when addressing challenges across social, political, and economic issues. Scholarships in this category will be awarded to students who work to break down cultural barriers and promote mutual respect and understanding among people from diverse backgrounds in their communities and the world.
- Environmental Sustainability
The Environmental Sustainability scholarship recognizes students who work to protect the environment and pioneer sustainability initiatives.
