Get a head start on your travels and apply for the international education scholarship

UAF is naturally and now, internationally, inspiring. It’s true, UAF wants you to leave the country for a while and will pay as long as you go away.

It’s an often-unused program at UAF, yet its advertisements can be seen all over campus.

A message to student from IPI

Now accepting applications, the International Study Program offers a scholarship to students attending the university from other countries or to students planning to study overseas during the 2015-2016 academic year. Students awarded with the scholarship for international education can receive up to $2,500 per semester.

If that didn’t pique your interest, the north2north program offers seven countries and over 50 universities to choose from. How does a cruise sound? UAF also offers a semester at sea exchange and plans to set sail around the world voyage on Jan. 5, 2016.

The International Studies’ search tool helps students narrow down which country and program to choose. In an appointment, Erica Keiko Iseri, Study Away adviser and exchange coordinator, also help students determine which study abroad program is right for them.

It’s required applicants submit references, statements, action plans and other scholarship requirements to the Scholarship Coordinator financial aid office no later than May 8, 2015.
