Diversity Scholarship for Study Abroad by jhalaas

In an effort to encourage students from groups historically underrepresented at UW-Madison and in study abroad (African American, Latino/Hispanic, Hmong (Cambodian, Laotian, Vietnamese) and Native Americans/Alaska Natives), CIBER is pleased to sponsor the CIBER Diversity Scholarship for Study Abroad. This award of up to $1000 will be awarded to an undergraduate studyding abroad through International Programs and the Wisconsin School of Business.

Students admitted during the spring 2011 application cycle to study abroad with International Programs for the fall 2011 and spring 2012 semester will be invited to apply for this scholarship. The scholarship application will consist of an essay that explains why the student’s anticipated study abroad experience is important to their academic and career objectives and how the scholarship will help them reach these goals.

This award is based on need and merit. To be considered, a student must have submitted a FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). Additional consideration may be given to students studying in Asia or Latin America.

Additional study abroad information can be found on the International Programs scholarship page.
