A Dream Come True To Study Abroad- Student Senate Scholarships

The Student Senate is giving away a total of $14,000 for 14 students t make their study abroad dreams a reality. About 18 students have applied at the first round, for $1000 that would help fund a student's upcoming summer or winter study abroad travel course.

Director of the university centre and students activities said, "It's a great opportunity. It can make or break someone's ability to go or not. And studying abroad can change one's perspective, on life."


"While the deadline for the first round was October 10, 2013, there is much to understand about this unique grant process to apply in the spring", said the university director.

Student Senate vice president of communications, Remington Steele said, "The most important part is the need of money. Around 70% is based on financial need."

"It's students giving back to students. We try to be as subjective as possible and avoid conflicts of interest during this process", Steele said.

He further said, "I think that the more people who receive it the more people will apply. The more people who go on trips, the more people, need the money. And those people will tell their friends about their experience, and how Student Senate helped them and hopefully we can help even more."

The Senate Student Scholarships started five years ago. On its first year, it had only 5 scholarships to give away and only four people applied that year.

While last year around 9 students had applied, this year Senate is able to give away 6 scholarships and 18 students have applied for it.

During the spring semester, there will be another chance to apply for the remaining scholarships. Please note that deadline to apply, for Senate Scholarships is November 6, 2013.
