Deadline extended to apply for Study Abroad scholarship

Mohawk Valley Community College has extended the deadline to apply for the ASC Scholarship for Study Abroad until Jan. 18.

MVCC now offers at least 10 $500 scholarships for matriculated students at MVCC so they can study abroad while earning their MVCC degree. The scholarships require at least a 2.0 GPA, an essay, a letter of recommendation from an MVCC faculty member, and an unofficial transcript. To request an application and to submit it on time, contact Tressa LaBella, Technical Assistant for the MVCC Foundation, at tlabella@mvcc.edu.

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.
