One scholarship of $700, to be disbursed in $350 awards at the conclusion of each semester’s work period, will be awarded.
The recipient will complete an internship with the UW-Eau Claire Center for International Education from mid-August to mid-October and again in mid-January to mid-March during the year the recipient has the Joyal-Alexander Scholarship. The student will spend an average of 5 hours/week either in the office, working on projects or facilitating related events.
