ASP Gap Year Study Scholarship 2017-18

The American Semester Program (ASP) presents the ASP Gap Year Study Scholarship for students aspiring to study at Michigan State University (MSU) for one year to further their academic and professional careers.

During the 2017-18 academic year we will award two $1,000 USD scholarships to students pursuing gap year study through ASP, in efforts to make studying abroad at MSU more attainable and affordable for all interested students.

The Gap Year Study Scholarship will be awarded to students through their MSU student account and cannot be combined with other ASP scholarships.
