  21. Dean’s Award for Graduate Student
  International Study- deadline 3/5

   

  Source:  This award is generously funded by the
  Graduate School under the direction of Dean Maureen
  Grasso.

  Purpose: To cover a study abroad program’s loss of
  tuition revenue, making it viable for more UGA
  graduate students on assistantship to study abroad.

  Note:  Because UGA graduate assistants do not pay
  tuition for coursework (other than a $25
  matriculation fee) and because UGA study abroad
  programs are often dependent on the tuition revenue
  generated by the credit hours in order to have the
  budget “make,” in the past, UGA study abroad
  programs often simply could not accept students on
  assistantship.  This award provides funds to the
  program in place of tuition, thereby allowing more
  study abroad programs to accept graduate assistants
  and more UGA graduate students to study abroad.  As
  a result, selected students do not receive any funds
  directly, and the award does not apply to non-UGA
  programs.  Recipients must still pay the regular
  program fee just as do other graduate students and
  undergraduates; the program cannot discount or
  reduce the student's program fees as a result of
  this award.

  Amount of award: An amount equal to either 3 or 6
  hours’ tuition, depending on the number of hours
  for which the student will enroll

  How paid: From the Graduate School restricted
  account, to be paid directly to the study abroad
  program, on behalf of an individual student

  Deadline: March 5, 2010 for 2010 Maymester or Summer
  programs (please send all documents to Kasee Clifton
  Laster, Bank of America, third floor).

  Overall guidelines for eligibility:

  Competitive – judged on the basis of academic
  merit and of the appropriateness and rigor of the
  proposed course of study. Selection by a
  subcommittee of the Strategic Planning Committee for
  Study Abroad. To be used on any UGA resident-credit
  program, Maymester or Summer, that offers courses
  for graduate credit. Student must be in good
  academic standing with no incompletes, and making
  satisfactory academic progress in a degree-seeking
  program as documented by the graduate coordinator.
  Student applicant must be on a UGA assistantship,
  and wishing to attend a UGA Maymester or summer
  study abroad program.

   

  Exclusions:

      Not open to transient or non-degree  in the
  following professional programs: JD, LLM,Østudents,
  nor to students MBA, MAcc, PharmD, DVM, nor to

  23. SIT -New Pell Match Scholarship Program:
  Increasing access to international education 

   

  SIT (the School for International Training) now
  offers a new scholarship for undergraduate Pell
  grant recipients. The Federal Pell Grant Program
  provides need-based grants to low-income
  undergraduate students to promote access to
  postsecondary education.

   

  Beginning with fall 2010 programs, SIT will
  automatically match a student's Pell award used for
  a semester program with SIT, thereby placing
  high-quality, field-based study abroad programs
  within greater financial reach of a wider range of
  undergraduate students.

   

  More than 30 SIT programs across the globe are
  eligible for the new Pell match scholarship.

  Today's increasingly complex and interconnected
  world requires leaders with the global perspectives
  and intercultural skills fostered during a
  meaningful study abroad experience. SIT students
  live with host families, learn local languages,
  study critical global issues in distinct geographic
  and cultural settings, and undertake undergraduate
  research or an extended practicum.

  SIT's new Pell match scholarship increases the
  access of high-impact study abroad programs to
  talented undergraduate students who are in a
  position to influence international and
  intercultural relations in the coming decades.

  with SIT, and for a list of other SIT Study Abroad
  scholarships, please visit the financial aid and
