Why did Flywire change the eligibility requirements?
We changed the eligibility criteria in 2023 due to an increase in the number of scholarship applications received in previous years. By limiting the geographic scope of the scholarship and focusing on undergraduate students, we can effectively manage and disburse scholarships to the winners in a timely manner.
How will I be notified of the results?
If you are selected as a winner, you will receive an email notification from [email protected] by Friday, July 21st. Please ensure that this email address is added to your contacts. Check back on our website to see if winners have been selected. If winners have been selected and you did not receive an email, unfortunately, you were not selected as a winner of the 2023 scholarship.
