Arthur Chapple Study Abroad Scholarship
Two $750 Scholarships may be awarded annually
The Chapple Scholarship is designed to promote Study Abroad experiences by UW Oshkosh Students majoring in either History or International Studies. It will be awarded to students in either of these majors who are enrolled to participate in a UW Oshkosh sponsored Study Abroad Program, with the funds awarded to be used for the study abroad experience.
This scholarship is available for study abroad programs in either Fall or Spring Interim, in semester long programs in either semester, or in summer study abroad programs. Normally there will be two awards of $750 per year.
The applicant must have a 3.0 cumulative GPA, and have completed at least 15 credits in their major, with a 3.0 GPA in their major, and must be majoring in either History or International Studies.
To be eligible students must submit an application to the Chair of their major (either History or International Studies), which includes verification of enrollment to study abroad.
The application will consist of a cover letter, and an essay of 1 or 2 pages explaining how the specific study abroad program relates to and enhances their major and their coursework in the major.
- Due Dates:
Applications will be due:
- the first Friday in October for Fall Interim and Spring Semester Programs, and
- the last week in February for Spring Interim, Summer, and Fall Semester Programs.
Students who are enrolled in advance for Spring or Summer programs may apply in advance during the Fall cycle, and are advised to complete enrollment in time to do so.
The applications will be reviewed and awardees selected by the Chairs of the History and International Studies Programs, acting jointly. The Chairs will verify enrollment and major status, courses completed and GPA’s, and then based their awards mainly on the essay and the degree to which the proposed Study Abroad Program relates to and enhances the student’s major and studies.
In the event that 2 grants are awarded in Fall, there will be no funds remaining for Spring Awards. That decision will be based on the number of applicants and the quality of the applicants in the Fall cycle.
