UCEAP Call for 2011 Study Abroad Scholarship Applicants
DATE: 7/1/2011
 

University of California Education Abroad Program participants planning to attend semester- or year-long immersion programs in the 2011-2012 academic year are encouraged to apply for the Jasmine Jahanshahi Award offered annually to UC students.


Santa Barbara, CA (July 2011)—The University of California Education Abroad Program (UCEAP) recently announced a call for applications for the Jasmine Jahanshahi Scholarship Award, which is offered to students planning to attend UCEAP semester- or year-long immersion programs in the 2011-2012 academic year.

"We strongly encourage students who have demonstrated academic excellence and a strong commitment to global issues to apply and/or work with their campus advisors to submit their applications in a timely fashion," said Jean-Xavier Guinard, Associate Vice Provost and Executive Director of the University of California Education Abroad Program.

The Jasmine Jahanshahi Scholarship Award was established to honor Jasmine Jahanshahi, a UCEAP and UC Berkeley student who participated in the 2010-2011 program at Sciences Po, in Paris, France. Two study abroad scholarship awards in the amount of $2,500 each are available yearly for UCEAP students on semester or year-long immersion programs. Applicants must have a passion for studying abroad and a willingness to embrace and learn from the host country's customs, language, and culture.

In line with Jasmine’s personal philosophies on study abroad, the scholarship highlights the importance making a strong commitment to global issues with a goal to foster deeper global connections.

As Jasmine Jahanshahi said: "To truly understand a country – its social tensions, linguistic subtleties, culture, one must have a first hand account; one must spend a significant amount of time in the country."

The deadline for applications is August 1, 2011. For more information on eligibility requirements and the application process, visit the Jasmine Jahanshahi Scholarship page.
