Call for Applications
The Global Oregon Initiative invites UO undergraduate students to apply for one of ten $500 research awards offered to support global education experiences (study abroad, international internships, international research opportunities).
Global Oregon is a university-wide strategic initiative to enhance internationalization in the student experience, in research, and in our outreach to the state and the world. Like all strategic initiatives, it blurs the boundaries among teaching, research, and community service.
Global Oregon is deliberately cross-regional and interdisciplinary, drawing together UO expertise on every world region and from many academic domains to address truly global challenges and to internationalize the student experience, and by extension, the state.
Applications will be evaluated against the following criteria:
- 1) Clarity and effectiveness of project presentation
- 2) Potential to advance the professional and intellectual development of the student
- 3) Applicant’s demonstrated academic success
- 4) Preference will be given to applicants with demonstrated financial need (e.g. Pell grant eligibility, Pathways Oregon, etc.)
- 5) Contribution to UO internationalization and to the overall Global Oregon mission
Applicants should submit a 2-page narrative proposal, including a description of the proposed activity, an explanation of the importance of the activity to the student’s academic and professional goals, a proposed timeline, and a summary of anticipated expenses. Include a resume (2 pages, max.), UO academic transcript, and the name and contact information for the applicant’s academic adviser.
Applications should be submitted electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org [subject line: First Name_Last Name Global Oregon Graduate Research Award Application].
Deadline: Tuesday, April 1, 2014. The recipients will be announced in late April.
