Scholarship founder and world traveler, Kortney Easterly, is a proud alumna of Georgia State University. Easterly graduated in 2011 with a BA in Journalism and BA in Sociology and was the recipient of the Fall 2011 Nell Hamilton Trotter Student Leadership Award. Her passion and experience with the study abroad program at Georgia State compelled her to create the Kortney Easterly Cosmopolitan Scholarship to provide students with financial assistance with their study abroad programs. The scholarship is open to all full-time, undergraduate students who meet the minimum requirements; preference is given to students who have never traveled abroad.

The Kortney Easterly Cosmopolitan Scholarship is designed to assist full-time, undergraduate Georgia State University students with enriching their academic and professional careers through international education and global experience.

“This study abroad has opened my eyes to new adventures and encouraged me to push myself. I was able to get out of my comfort zone and learn to navigate every obstacle that was put in my way. As Mary Anne Radmacher said, “I am not the same, having seen the moon shine on the other side of the world.”
