----------------------------------------------------

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 students,
nor to students in the following professional
programs: JD, LLM, MBA, MAcc, PharmD, DVM, nor to
students paying tuition themselves (i.e., not on
assistantship) . Not to be used on behalf of TA’s

purpose (one-page maximum): What are your objectives

program made a difference in the student’s
graduate education. Upon return: as requested by the
Graduate School, student will be willing to speak
publicly to the university community and to selected
external audiences about their experiences and
knowledge gained during their international study

Requirements from the program:

funded.  Brief description of the study abroad
program and the place of the graduate course within

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
