Beta Gamma Sigma is pleased to have several scholarships available for students to attend the 2019 Global Leadership Summit. Thanks to the generosity of donors and other members of BGS, GLS Scholarships will offset both registration costs and the cost of travel.

Students enrolled at schools in the continental United States are eligible for scholarships ranging from $1,000 to $1,250, covering the cost of registration and travel to the Summit.

Students enrolled at schools outside the continental United States are eligible for a scholarship ranging from $1,000 to $1,500, covering the cost of registration and travel to the Summit. Students enrolled at schools in the Philippines, Alaska, Hawaii and the U.S. Virgin Islands are eligible for the OUS scholarships.

Scholarship amounts listed are the value of the award and will not be presented to the student in a check but will be applied to the total combined cost of the GLS registration and airfare to the Summit.

If you have any questions regarding GLS scholarships, please contact Denise Cage at dcage@betagammasigma.org.
