MVCC now offers at least ten $500 scholarships for matriculated students at MVCC so they can study abroad while they are earning their MVCC degree.
These Auxiliary Services Scholarships for Study Abroad require at least a 2.0 g.p.a., an essay, a letter of recommendation from an MVCC faculty member, and an unofficial transcript. The deadline for the spring semester is December 3.Applications are available in the MVCC Foundation (PH220); Student Services (ACC208); Rome (PCA30), and International Education (ACC224).
The scholarship is most easily applied to the homegrown, faculty-led short-term SA300 Study Abroad course that ends by going to Paris and Amsterdam. Beginning in January 2013, the course will include Hemingway’s Moveable Feast, Van Gogh’s Letters, and Woody Allen’s Midnight in Paris. Students will do a number of reflective essays and blogs as well as a group collaborative video project. Financial aid may apply.
