Selection Process

Interviews will be conducted shortly after application deadlines. The interview committee will consist of the director of Financial Aid and the faculty Study Abroad Committee members. The Study Abroad Coordinator will attend the interviews, but will not vote.

If for any reason the awardee elects not to go abroad, the runner-up applicant may be awarded the scholarship, or the committee may decide not to award the scholarship. If after being accepted by the program provider, the awardee elects not to study abroad, the scholarship cannot be used to pay withdrawal penalty fees (these fees are the responsibility of the student).

The scholarship is not awarded until the student has been officially accepted by the program provider and has paid the application fee and the initial down-payment on the program fee.

The student who receives the scholarship will be expected to send a thank-you note to the donor within six weeks of returning to the U.S. (with a copy to the Study Abroad Coordinator).
