The Barger Leadership Institute Global Scholarship is designed to support students who are pursuing rich educational and developmental experiences through a formal study abroad program. Special priority is given to programs in non-English speaking or developing countries. This award will provide limited financial assistance for tuition, airfare, or additional living expenses for studying abroad.

BLI Global Scholarships are supported by the James H.M. Sprayregen Scholarship Fund and the Blattman-Borg Awards Funds.
