Wayne Merrick Scholarship in International Studies

The Wayne Merrick Scholarship in International Studies is intended to make study abroad possible for promising Allegheny College students with demonstrated financial need who are majoring in International Studies.

Applications for study abroad in academic year 2019-2020 should be submitted to Prof. Laura Reeck by Monday, April 1, 2019. Applications may be sent to Professor Reeck through campus mail [Box 30] but students should ensure that all materials arrive by the deadline.

Applications should include the following:

  1. a narrative description of study abroad plans, curricular and co-curricular activities and how study abroad will foster these;
  2. a copy of the applicant’s college transcript (it need not be official);
  3. documentation of acceptance to a study-abroad program or description of concrete plans to study abroad.

Up to two scholarships of $2,000 will be awarded, depending on the strength of the applicant pool.  Please note that funds are not awarded in cash, but are applied directly to the student’s financial aid package.  Recipients are selected by the International Studies Steering Committee.
