posted Feb 21, 2012, 11:25 PM by Urban Planning Coalition SJSU

The College of Social Sciences will be offering a limited number of Study Abroad and International Field Work Scholarships for College of Social Sciences students.

Applicants must be matriculated students at SJSU, majoring in one of the College of Social Sciences programs, have completed at least one semester at SJSU, studying or conducting research or fieldwork outside the United States and have a minimum 3.5 GPA in their major or graduate program and a minimum overall GPA of 3.0. Upper-division students, furthermore, must have completed 60 units, with at least one semester at SJSU.

Application Procedure:

  1. Complete the attached application form.
  2. Write a 2-3 page essay regarding how you will use the scholarship, if awarded. (Discuss participation in a study abroad program or your research study and how this will augment and/or fulfill requirements for your degree at SJSU.)
  3. Attach your MY SJSU transcript. Request transcripts from other universities/colleges. Submit these transcripts when they arrive.
  4. Attach a resume including employment, volunteer work, studies and academic-related awards, achievements, papers or other publications.
  5. Include a faculty nomination letter. The nomination letter should discuss how the study abroad, field work, or research enhances your academic career at SJSU.
  6. If you have not already applied for financial aid for this academic year, apply now with the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). You do not have to qualify for financial aid to receive this award, but you do have to have some demonstrated financial need as determined by the SJSU financial aid/scholarship office. To be able to determine financial need, they must have your FAFSA on file.

DEADLINE: Monday, March 26, 2012, 4:00 PM to the Dean’s Office, College of Social Sciences, WSQ 103
