UC4A Study Abroad Scholarship

Sponsored by the African American Alumni Affiliate

The African American Alumni Affiliate proudly awards scholarships to students intent on studying abroad to enrich their college experience. We believe adventure is the best way to learn. By increasing exposure to international experiences we contribute directly to creating well-rounded students with unlimited opportunities post-graduation. This year, UC4A anticipates awarding three (3) scholarships for $500 each.

Eligibility requirements include:

  • Involved in a cultural organization

  • Possess, at least, a 2.5 GPA

  • Have a minimum of 15 credit hours; graduate students are also eligible

  • Must show proof of ten (10) or more community service hours

  • Registered for a trip during the Spring, Summer, or Fall semesters of 2017

To apply:

  • Submit complete application by January 13, 2017

    • For the application, write an original 400-500 word essay reflecting on the following quote:

      “Perhaps travel cannot prevent bigotry, but by demonstrating that all people cry, laugh, eat, worry, and die, it can introduce the idea that if we try and understand each other, we many even become friends.” –Mya Angelou

      Describe how your experience with diversity has prepared you for your study abroad experience and what do you hope to bring back to the University of Cincinnati.

  • Scholarship recipients will be notified of award by late-January 2017
