  2. The Global Field Course or Study Abroad program to which the funds will be applied.
  3. How the experience will further your educational and career goals.
  4. An explanation of any extenuating financial circumstances.
  5. A statement indicating that a current FAFSA is on file with the Office of Financial Aid.
