Eligibility Criteria

One award is given to an outstanding student seeking to complete a service project in an international setting-either through one of the university's approved international study abroad sites or in a specific international setting. The service component must be articulated through a plan of action in terms of the activity, arrangements that have been made, the target audience of the service and the anticipated outcome. A portion of the award may be used to cover routine expenses associated with the international study abroad experience or international travel, and a portion of the award also must be used to fulfill the service learning aspect. This may include -- but not be limited to -- supplies, materials and resources directly used in providing service to the target population.

Application Procedure An application form is available in the Center for Service Learning and must be submitted there as well. If the targeted service activity is to be completed in conjunction with a study abroad experience, the applicant must be accepted into the university's study abroad program as a requisite for receiving the service fellowship. The application should include a letter explaining the service project and at least one faculty recommendation endorsing the service project.
Application Deadline First Monday in April. The recipient shall use these funds beginning in the following fall semester through the next summer semester. The recipient shall complete the service project and provide a report (written or orally) on the trip and service activity before the summer semester ends, so allotted funds can be administered.
Selection Procedure Representatives from the Center for Service Learning and the study abroad Grant Committee shall review applications and references and select the recipient.
Notification The recipient will be notified by a letter from the director of the Center for Service Learning, who will also submit the scholarship award form to Financial Aid.
Special Notes Upon completion of the international service activity, the recipient shall be expected to make a presentation or write a summary reflecting on the experience, the impact on the community served and the impact on the participant.
Thank You A thank you note to Dr. Sally Webb is requested and shall be directed to her in care of the UW-Eau Claire Foundation.
