Study Abroad Scholarship Association (SASA)

P: 718.951.5550

The Study Abroad Scholarship Association (SASA) was created in 2010. The Brooklyn College CLAS student body voted to increase their CLAS student activity fee “to provide funding for currently enrolled Brooklyn College CLAS students who are in good standing and meet the college’s established procedures for scholarships to study abroad.” With approval from the president and the CUNY Board of Trustees, this funding was earmarked to SASA to be allocated by the Brooklyn College Association/Central Depository. All student activity fee funds must be confirmed to the CUNY Fiscal Accountability Guidelines set forth by the CUNY Board of Trustees. Grants of up to $1,000 will be awarded; priority will be given to first-time applicants.


A completed application (PDF) must be received by Central Depository, Attention: SASA Application, 314 Student Center, no later than October 15 (for winter/spring programs) or March 15 (for summer programs) by 5 p.m. Recommendation letters may be sent via e-mail no later than the application deadlines. Recipients will be announced by mid-November and mid-April.

  • Two independent directors appointed by the college president.

Note: The administrator in charge of Central Depository shall attend meetings of the association, with voice but no vote.

BCA and its subcommittee, the Budget Committee, meets once a month.
