CWRU receives grant to support study abroad scholarships for underrepresented minority students; applications due Sept. 30

Case Western Reserve University recently received a $7,500 Generation Study Abroad Grant from the Institute of International Education (IIE) to support new scholarships for underrepresented minority students. The Office of Education Abroad will match this funding, and will work closely with the Office of Multicultural Affairs to market and award six think:possibilities scholarships of $2,500 each to underrepresented minority students at CWRU.

Students can use the scholarships to cover the cost of tuition, books and travel related to study, service learning or internships abroad during the 2017 spring semester.

The goal of the IIE Generation Study Abroad Grant is to help make study abroad opportunities possible for more U.S. students from a broad range of backgrounds.

The application—due Sept. 30—can be found online at case.edu/international/edabroad/students/scholarships.html.
