Program Description:
JOYAL & ALEXANDER STUDY ABROAD REENTRY FACILITATION SCHOLARSHIP

The Joyal/Alexander scholarship is designed to help with the re-entry “culture shock” of UWEC study-abroad students who are returning from study abroad experiences.  The selected student will work with the CIE to coordinate reentry events for returning study abroad students. Past events have included:
  • Welcome Home, Blugolds gathering
  • Resume, Cover Letter and Interview Tips
  • Opportunities to Go Abroad Again
  • Assist with gathering returnees for the Centennial Celebration parade

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.

To apply for this scholarship 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, be available beginning in mid-August, and be on campus* during the entire 2016-2017 academic year

Demonstrated leadership ability, interest in connecting/expanding study abroad experience on campus and in future plans, ability to work independently and take initiative, demonstrated organizational skills, a flexible schedule, and dedication to community service at home and abroad are qualities desired in the successful applicant.

The application deadline has been extended to May 25th! Decisions will be announced by May 31, 2016.

*This means that applicants cannot be participating in another study abroad program, an off-campus internship, etc.  It does not mean that you must live on campus.
