Here’s the information:
The First Abroad Scholarship provides first-generation in college students with the opportunity to study abroad by reducing the financial barrier that may prevent some students from considering study abroad during their undergraduate career. Approximately 25 recipients a year will receive a one-time scholarship of $3,000 to help cover the cost of the UT-approved study abroad program of their choice. Recipients have up to two academic years to select a program and participate, ensuring sufficient time to plan the study abroad experience. For example, a student who is awarded a First Abroad Scholarship in May 2012 may use the scholarship in any term between fall 2012 and summer 2014.
First Abroad Scholarship winners who choose a UT-approved program in mainland China will automatically receive the Coca-Cola Foundation China Scholarship <http://world.utexas.edu/abroad/funding/scholarships/cocacola> for an additional $2,000.
