PLEASE NOTE: The deadline to apply for a study abroad scholarship for one of the 2019 trips has already passed! The deadline was Sept. 16, 2018.

What

Partial scholarships (typically ranging from as little as $300 to no more than $1000) are available to assist students in traveling abroad through a DCCC program, and are awarded as the final payment. If awarded a scholarship, the student must pay all required out-of-pocket expenses up front by the payment deadlines in order for the scholarship to kick in.

There are specific scholarships for students in a Nursing program, as well as students in the TRiO Program!

For 2018-19, DCCC has eligible programs in Ireland, Scotland, and Japan.  Please Note: The Argentina trip will have a separate scholarship application process, to be posted to the Argentina information page at a later date.

Who

Applicants will need to…

  • complete a minimum of 12 credit hours by May 2019.
  • commit to a DCCC study abroad program during spring or summer 2019.
  • be a current curriculum student at the time of travel, including enrollment in the trip’s accompanying HUM 180 or Continuing Education course.

Preference is given to applicants showing solid academic achievement, as evidenced by a GPA of at least 2.5, and to participants in the Scholars of Global Distinction program, but consideration will be given to the entire contents of the application, especially the essay. Applicants may also be asked to interview with International Education Committee members.

Deadline is Sunday, September 16, 2018 by 11:59 PM
