HAAS SCHOLARSHIPS FOR RETURNED STUDY ABROAD STUDENTS
Up to thirteen Leonard and Dorellen Haas scholarships, in the amount of $250-$500 each, will be awarded in 2016-2017. Haas Scholars agree to assist with publicity and set-up for the annual Study Abroad Fair, to be held on Wednesday, October 12, 2016, and to assist with at least other study abroad-related events as needed. Examples of other events have been:
Campus visit days
Get the Scoop
Regional Info Sessions
Orientation returnee panelist
To apply for these fellowships, you must meet the following criteria:
• Have studied on a UW-Eau Claire study abroad program for a minimum of 1 semester
• Have a cumulative GPA of at least 3.0
• Be a continuing, full-time student at UW-Eau Claire, and be on campus*, during the entire 2016-2017 academic year
Demonstrated leadership, dedication to community service, participation in the host community abroad beyond what was required by the program, and application or planned application of your study abroad experience back home will strengthen an application.
*This means that applicants cannot be participating in another study abroad program, an off-campus internship, etc., during the 16-17 academic year. You can also not be graduating in December 2016. It does not mean that you need to live on campus.
