The Global Opportunities office in the Center for Experiential Learning & Diversity is accepting applications for the GO!, Fritz, and GO! STEMXchange scholarships for study abroad. These undergraduate awards range between $2,000 to $5,000. Students whose programs begin during winter or spring quarter 2017 should apply during the fall application cycle. The application deadline for all three of these scholarships is October 25. Students who plan to begin study abroad in the summer or fall of 2017 should wait and apply in the spring (look for announcements about the spring application cycle in winter quarter). To apply or obtain more information about scholarship eligibility requirements, please visit the Global Opportunities webpage: http://expd.uaa.washington.edu/globalopportunities/
The first writing workshop for these awards is scheduled for Thursday, October 6th from 6-7pm in MGH 171. The purpose of this workshop is to give students guidance as they begin writing their application essays. Students can sign up to attend the workshop through the Global Opportunities webpage as well as through starting an online application for any of these awards. More advanced writing sessions will be offered as we move closer to the deadline. If students have questions about study abroad program offerings or course credit, please encourage them to visit the UW Study Abroad office in 459 Schmitz Hall (they offer drop-in advising between 10am-4pm daily) or e-mail studyabroad.
If students have questions about these scholarship programs or would like to set up a scholarship advising appointment, please have them send an email goglobal.
