The SCC Global Education Initiative is able to offer three (3) two hundred dollar ($200) Student Travel Scholarships for each Global Education Travel Trip. If the college sponsors three (3) trips in a given year, the Global Education Student Travel Scholarship may be awarded up to a total of nine (9) scholarships (three (3) per SCC-sponsored global education travel trip). The decision to offer more than three (3) scholarships in a given academic year will be based on factors such as assuming adequate funding and sufficient qualified applicants. Scholarships will not be awarded if student applicants do not meet the minimum qualifications.
To be eligible for the Global Education Travel Scholarship the student must be enrolled in the GLST 2980 course and go on the associated trip. In addition, the student must: A) met the scholarship requirements, B) submit a Global Education Student Travel Scholarship Faculty Recommendation Form and C) submit a Global Education Student Travel Scholarship Checklist Form with their scholarship application. After the forms have been submitted, the Global Education Committee will evaluate the applications and notify the applicants of the committee’s decision.
