Scholarship Opportunity / Study Abroad

This is not internship related but it looks like a great opportunity.

Dear colleagues,

I am writing to remind you that your students may be eligible to compete for two study abroad scholarships.

One is given by the College Language Association, and is named for our late colleague Dr. Caroll Mills Young, who was instrumental in establishing this scholarship.  The other is given by the Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi.

Please encourage students to apply for either or both of these if they are planning to study abroad this summer or fall.   Applicants must submit a letter of acceptance to a study abroad program, or a statement that they have applied for acceptance into a program.

The CLA Study Abroad Scholarship has a competition deadline of  February 6, 2017 for study abroad in the summer or fall terms of 2017.

Winners of the CLA Study Abroad Scholarship receive $1,000, which is applied directly to their study abroad bill.  Both undergraduate and graduate students may compete for this as long as they will be studying abroad with a program. The eligibility requirements, competition guidelines, and application documents are found at, under the drop-down menu “Awards” on the link “ Study Abroad.”   Dr. Marveta Ryan-Sams ( can serve as a CLA sponsor for any applicant.

Winners of the Study Abroad Grant from the Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi also receive $1,000 for expenses related to study abroad.  This competition is only open to undergraduate students meeting the eligibility requirements.  The eligibility requirements and competition guidelines are posted at, under Awards, on the link for Study Abroad. The application deadline  is February 15, 2017 for students traveling between May 1 and November 30, 2017.
