Apply for Summer Program and Study Abroad Scholarships

101918-Study Abroad SummerProgram

Applications for the fall round of Summer Program and Study Abroad Scholarships are due on November 5, 2018.

Summer Program Scholarship

The Summer Program Scholarship is for active undergraduate members, including seniors who are about to graduate at the time of application. The scholarship provides up to $1,500 for the purpose of attending a special summer program, either in the US or abroad, which furthers the applicant’s engagement with Sigma Tau Delta’s mission. Qualifying summer programs must be at least three weeks in length and no longer than three months. Applicants should demonstrate academic scholarship and chapter service and must explain the relevance of their summer program to fostering their engagement in the discipline of English, including literature, language, writing, or literacy. Note: This scholarship cannot be used toward a regular summer session at the student’s home institution.

Before receiving this scholarship, applicants are required to provide proof of their enrollment in the summer program described in their applications.

Study Abroad Scholarship

The Study Abroad Scholarship provides up to $3,000 for the purposes of studying for an academic term or year in a certified, undergraduate program outside the country in which the nominating chapter is located. Applicants should demonstrate academic scholarship and chapter service; they also must explain the relevance of their study abroad program and activities to fostering the discipline of English, including literature, language, writing, or literacy.

Study Abroad Scholarships are determined twice each year. Scholarships awarded in Fall 2018 can be used for programs between January and December 2019. Unsuccessful fall applications are eligible to re-apply in the following spring, but a new application must be completed.

Scholarship recipients will be required to provide verification that they have arrived on-site (an official letter from the resident director of the program is acceptable for this purpose).
