University Of Iowa Diversity Ambassador Scholarship (Deadline: October 1, 2015)

Submitted by

Who Can Apply: The Diversity Ambassador Scholarship program provides awards of $500 for UI undergraduate students to study abroad for a summer, winter, semester or academic year program. The scholarships are intended to support the diversification of students who study abroad. Upon completion of the study abroad program and return to UI, award recipients are asked to submit a photo and an open letter to prospective students for use on our diversity web pages, or suggest an alternate means of sharing with prospective students. Open letters are especially helpful as they reach the broadest audience. All Diversity Ambassadors will be invited to share their experiences abroad with prospective students from underrepresented groups on campus through outreach events.

Students from groups that have traditionally been under-represented in study abroad are encouraged to apply. Eligibility includes but is not limited to:

  • Students from racial and ethnic backgrounds that are under-represented on the UI campus
  • Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) students
  • Students with disabilities
  • Students who are the first in their family to attend college or university (“first generation” college students)
  • Students with a history of overcoming adversity based on group identification or affiliation
