The Division of Global Engagement is proud to announce that 22 UC Santa Cruz students have received a combined total of more than $75,000 in scholarship funding for study abroad or away programs. The average amount awarded per student was $2,000.
These students, most of whom intend to study abroad or away in fall 2021, have been recognized as exceptional students by UC Santa Cruz, UCEAP, and the United States government.
Students were awarded scholarships from the following funds:
- The Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship
- The UCEAP Promise Award
- The Foreign Language Education Abroad Fund
- Freeman Awards for Study in Asia
- Semester at Sea
- The Achim Perner Memorial Fund
“The affordability of global learning programs is always at the top of our minds, and it’s an area where there has been tremendous work done in terms of accessibility and opportunity,” said Adam Freed, Global Learning Coordinator and Advisor. “These students are commendable not only as scholarship awardees, but also because they will be some of the first UCSC students studying abroad or away post-COVID.”
Global Engagement is incredibly proud of these students and looks forward to following their progress in their respective programs.
