Study Abroad Scholarship Application
Partial scholarships are available to assist students in traveling abroad through a DCCC 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.
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
Complete the application form and essay as indicated below.
Your essay should respond to the following prompt and be approximately one page long, double spaced. You will then upload your essay in a Microsoft Word or PDF document.
- Why do you want to participate in the study abroad program you’ve chosen? How would receiving this award make it possible for you to achieve your academic, professional, and personal goals? How would this award help overcome obstacles that you face in pursuing study abroad?
Scholarship applicants must have also completed the application for their chosen trip (see links under “What” above) in order to be considered for a scholarship.
