The GEBA Board of Directors voted unanimously to offer scholarships and Member Educational Program Awards (MEAP) for the 2021/2022 academic year.
- Up to 40 merit-based scholarships, each valued at $2,500.
- Up to 10 Member Educational Award Program MEAP), each valued at $2,500.
Merit-based scholarships have three categories include: Academic, Community, and Career Training. An applicant can only apply for one scholarship category per year. To sponsor themselves or an eligible family member, members must have one plan for three years or more (since December 31, 2017). There is no limit to the number of family members that a member can sponsor. This past year, we had two sisters and two cousins win Scholarships!
The MEAP program is a member-only benefit. You must be a member as of January 15, 2021. The award can be used for part-time studies that are not reimbursed by your employer or to pay off student loan debt in your name.
International Scholarship & Tuition Services (ISTS) administers these two programs and selects the winners. Applications are submitted online; the deadline is Wednesday, March 31, 2021.
