||One award of $1,300.
| 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.
||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.
