The Wayne Merrick Scholarship in International Studies is intended to assist promising Allegheny students majoring in International Studies with study for a semester or year abroad. Applications for the scholarship should be submitted to Prof. Laura Reeck by Monday, April 10, 2017 (applications may be sent to Reeck through campus mail [Box 190] 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); and 3) documentation of acceptance to a study-abroad program or description of concrete plans to study abroad. Applications should be made for study abroad in academic year 2017-18. Two scholarships of $2,000 will be awarded: note that the monies will not be awarded to the student in cash, but will be applied to the student’s financial aid package. Recipients will be selected by the International Studies Steering Committee.
