Support Students with Global Perspectives

Your support has a powerful positive influence on our students and our faculty, changing lives over the years and around the globe.

Support for scholarships and fellowships is especially empowering and a top priority – at the Elliott School of International Affairs and across the George Washington University. You can read about Open Doors: The Centuries Initiative for Scholarships & Fellowships on the GW Giving website.

In addition, the Elliott School this year established the Elliott Equity Fund, designed to create opportunities for students with critical financial need to benefit from the high-caliber education our school provides.

Thank you! Every gift makes a world of difference.

"The fellowship helped ease my financial burden. It also increased my level of confidence, since the Elliott School has a diverse and talented cohort and the fellowship made me stand out in this pool. The fellowship, at the same time, humbled me."

“Without financial assistance, I simply would not have been able to attend GW. I am from Wisconsin, so attending school in DC and taking advantages of the organizations and individuals in the District has been an amazing new experience for me.”

New scholarship initiative clears path to success

Lydia Schalles, BA ’19, knew a degree from GW’s Elliott School of International Affairs would take her far — and she was right. After graduation, she was hired by the U.S. Department of Defense to work on internationally focused projects. “Without a scholarship, I wouldn’t have been able to go to a school like GW.” 


"I studied Global Communication, a program that combines international affairs with the study of the global information environment. There is no better city to study this than DC, and I am grateful for my fellowship that helped me come to GW from Panama City, Panama."
