The AIFS Foundation is proud to announce the John S. Linakis Scholarship.
This need-based scholarship will be awarded annually to an AIFS student with limited financial resources and a demonstrated interest in social justice. The scholarship covers tuition and room and board to a student participating in an AIFS spring semester program.
Mr. Linakis began his 30-year career at AIFS working in the study abroad division. He later became the head of the AIFS flights department as well as the Senior Vice President of AIFS. John had a great appreciation for travel and felt it broadened awareness of cultural and economic differences. He cared deeply for people of all walks of life, and dreamed of a world where those differences didn’t limit opportunity.
A completed scholarship and program application must be postmarked by September 15th, so if you’re interested in studying abroad next spring, get more information about the scholarship here.
We are pleased to add this to the more than $600,000 in scholarships, grants and financial support awarded each year to deserving students and institutions, and look forward to announcing the inaugural winner! Read more about all of our scholarships on our website.
