What: Two Dean’s Scholarships of $2,000 each will be awarded to help students from the College of Education cover expenses that exceed on-campus costs related to their chosen College of Education study abroad program. Additionally, the Ian J. Render Memorial Scholarship will consist of $3,000, which will be awarded to help students cover expenses exclusively for the College of Education study abroad program to teach in South Africa.

Who: The Scholarships will provide support to undergraduates from the College of Education who are enrolled in credit-bearing study abroad programs sponsored by the College of Education in the summer of 2018, fall of 2018, or spring of 2019.

Why: The scholarships will significantly lower the cost barrier of study abroad and enable the engagement of students in powerful learning experiences that lead to greater understanding of diverse peoples and cultures.

How: Applications will be reviewed by a faculty committee in early February. Promising applicants will be invited to a selection interview in mid- to late-February and the awards should be announced in early March.
