Office of External Scholarships Presents Scholarship Info Sessions

Published: Aug 30, 2013

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Aug. 30, 2013) — Do you want to hone your language skills abroad? Have you been dreaming of furthering your studies in England? Are you looking to serve your country or need assistance so you can make the next big research breakthrough? The University of Kentucky Office of External Scholarships (OES) wants to share with you a myriad of national and international scholarship opportunities available to university students at upcoming information sessions.

 

Four sessions will be presented in September for those interested in language studies, public service, education abroad or graduate research opportunities. While some of these opportunities target specific classes, attending these information sessions early in the academic career helps students be more prepared when the time actually comes to apply and the sessions are open to all classes. All four OES scholarship information sessions will be presented at 6 p.m. in Funkhouser Building Room 219.

 

Space is limited at all OES information sessions. Students who are interested in attending should email Jennifer N. Strange, jennifer.strange@uky.edu, no later than the Monday before the session.

 

The first session, scheduled for Sept. 4, will provide details on the Gates Cambridge Scholarship. These highly competitive full-cost scholarships are awarded to outstanding applicants to pursue a full-time postgraduate degree in any subject available at the University of Cambridge. Seniors who have a 3.7 GPA or above are encouraged to attend. For more information about the scholarship visit www.gatescambridge.org.

 

Students wishing to study at Cambridge or other institutions in England should also consider the English-Speaking Union Scholarships Info Session being presented on Sept. 11. The Kentucky Branch of the English-Speaking Union awards scholarships for college juniors to study English literature, history or social sciences at Cambridge, Edinburgh or Oxford University during the summer of 2014. Students with a 3.8 GPA or above with limited foreign travel experience are encouraged to attend this session. UK's 2013 English-Speaking Union Scholar, Nicole Schladt, will be on hand to speak about her experience in England. For more information, visit the English-Speaking Union website at www.esuus.org/esu.

 

For students interested in advancing language skills, the info session on Sept. 18 will focus on several opportunities to study languages abroad. The Critical Language Scholarship, Boren Graduate Fellowship and Boren Undergraduate Scholarship are some popular programs that provide students opportunities to study languages critical to US interests in countries around the world. This session offers opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students, alike, who are interested in learning a language. UK's 2013 Critical Language Scholarship recipient Lydia Roll will speak about her experience in Turkey. For more information, visit www.clscholarship.org and www.borenawards.org

 

The last info session of the month will focus on the National Science Foundation (NSF) Graduate Research Fellowship on Sept. 26. NSF Graduate Research Fellowships are awarded to outstanding students in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) fields who are planning to attend graduate school. For more information, visit www.nsfgrfp.org

 

Some of these awards require applicants must be a US citizen, permanent resident or US national.

 

OES is part of the Academy of Undergraduate Excellence within the Division of Undergraduate Education. The office assists current UK undergraduate and graduate students and recent alumni in applying for external scholarships and fellowships funded by sources (such as a nongovernment foundation or government agency) outside the university. These major awards honor exceptional students across the nation.
