International Studies Scholarship Requirements

This is a Tuition Waiver Scholarship and is available only to students whose tuition is not fully covered by other scholarships.  Obvious examples of experiential learning activities for the Scholarship include Study Abroad and Internships with an international emphasis, but students may propose other alternatives with the approval of the Director of the International Studies Program.  All Applicants must have and/or maintain at least a 3.0 overall GPA and be enrolled in at least one INTS course for the semester during which they receive the waiver.  

Students should apply for the scholarship before participating in the Experiential Learning Activity through the Continuing Scholarship Process in the Office of Financial Aid or by contacting the Director of International Studies.  Normally, however, students will receive the tuition waiver the semester following their participation in the experiential learning activity.  

Majors:  International Studies Majors who enrolled in, and passed with a grade of C or above, an experiential learning activity during the previous semester can receive up to $800 for each 3 hours of credit earned for a total of $2400 per semester.

Minors:  International Studies Minors who enrolled in, and passed with a grade of C or above, an experiential learning activity relevant to International Studies during the previous semester can receive up to $200 for each 3 hours of credit earned for a total of $600 per semester.
