Interested students and alumni! There is still time to apply for several fully funded year-long international experiences with deadlines looming in September! Rising seniors, new or current graduate and professional students, and alumni may be eligible to apply:
Luce Scholars Program – Apply by Sept. 6, 2017
This is a great opportunity for those with little or no prior experience in, or education about, Asian countries to add this valuable perspective to their future career interests! The Luce Scholars Program (http://www.hluce.org/lsprogram.aspx) is open to students and alumni under 30 as of July 1, 2018 in all fields of study (except Asian Studies – sorry!). It is unique among American-Asian exchanges in that it is intended for young leaders who have had limited experience of Asia and who might not otherwise have an opportunity in the normal course of their careers to come to know Asia. The program provides living stipends, language training and individualized professional placement in Asia for fifteen to eighteen young U.S. citizens each year. Learn more and apply for UW nomination at http://expd.uw.edu/expo/scholarships/luce.
Fulbright US Student Program – Apply by Sept. 6, 2017
Open to students and alumni in all fields (and no age limit!). The Fulbright U.S. Student Program provides grants for individually designed graduate-level study, independent research projects or English Teaching Assistant Programs in over 140 countries. Learn more about the program at https://us.fulbrightonline.org, and about our campus application and interview process at http://expd.uw.edu/expo/scholarships/fulbright.

Full funding is provided for students to pursue degrees in one of three disciplines: Public Policy, Economics and Business, and International Studies. Candidates must be at least 18 but not yet 29 years of age as of August 1, 2018. Learn more at http://schwarzmanscholars.org/program/.

DAAD – German Academic Exchange Service Scholarships – Apply for UW priority consideration by October 17; final campus deadline November 1
Highly qualified final year undergraduate students or those who have received an undergraduate degree in any discipline may apply for the DAAD Study Scholarship for a full Master’s degree program at a German university or for study at a German university as part of a postgraduate or Master’s degree program completed in the home country. Research Grants for 1-6 month or 7-10 month projects in Germany are awarded to highly qualified candidates from rising seniors through those who have already completed a Ph.D. (and all stages in between), including those wishing to earn a doctoral degree in Germany. Many study programs and research opportunities funded by DAAD do not require proficiency in the German language, there are no age limits, and US citizenship is not required. Learn more at https://www.daad.org/en/study-research-in-germany/.
