International Scholar Laureate Program Invitation?

Elizabeth93Elizabeth93 Registered User Posts: 7 New Member
I got an invitation for this today. Phi Theta Kappa members get kind of a boost as far as scholarships go, it looks like. So that’s probably where they got my info. Does anyone know anything about the legitimacy of this program? Should I consider it some kind of honor I’d mention in the future (similar to if one were a JKCF finalist or something), or simply delete and move on? Either way I can’t afford to go.

    I got the same email and I am actually considering going for engineering in Australia. @simplyhere are you considering it as an option?

    I am attaching this previous thread that had more information https://talk.collegeconfidential.com/brown-university/122475-international-scholar-laureate-program.html

    Also, when I was browsing around in their website I read that the "envision" thing was for high schoolers. So, I am now a bit confused how helpful it would be to a sophomore. at @Elizabeth93 I would not say it is an honor, unfortunately

    I got the same email and a really fancy letter in the mail that gave details for the trip. It seems like one of those too good to be true opportunities. We would get similar invitations in high school to spend a few days in Washington, D.C. I REALLY hope it’s not a scam, and that it actually counts for something towards college applications. I know that they have an option to apply for scholarships to help pay for your trip, but I don’t know if paying over 5k is really worth it. IF ANYONE HAS ANY ADDITIONAL DETAILS, PLEASE RESPOND TO THIS THREAD!!! We have 5 people over here wondering whether or not this is a real opportunity! I’ve been researching ISLP for the last 30 minutes and can’t find anything that either made me believe this is a scam or believe that this is truly a once in a lifetime opportunity. HELP!!!
