New Scholarship for CWRU students to study in China: Application Process is Now Open

Starting in fall 2015, the Chinese government will provide two full scholarships to Case Western Reserve University students to study for a semester or academic year in China. The scholarships will include tuition and accommodation fees, living allowances, and medical insurance for an academic year.

This past spring, CWRU met with Ambassador Sun Guoxiang, Consul General of the People’s Republic of China in New York to discuss the scholarship program and in August a memorandum of understanding was signed formalizing the commitment.

The opening of the scholarship application process coincides with the announcement of the United States and the People’s Republic of China approving a
reciprocal visa agreement. The new arrangement will allow American and Chinese students to receive multiple-entry visas for a longer amount of time, in essence increasing the ease of students traveling back and forth.

Students interested in applying for one of the scholarships should contact the
Office of Education Abroad at

The perspectives will include those from The Netherlands, Spain, and France. Join us for this interactive international bioethics discussion.

Study Abroad in Poland!
SASS 375/575 Poland: Invisible Groups in a New Poland

This spring semester course that travels to Poland over spring break introduces students to Polish culture and Polish social policies and practices concerning disenfranchised, stigmatized and disempowered social groups. The course will encourage students to understand how Poland's recent political and economic transformations affect society, in general, and some groups, in particular. The course will focus on how Polish society addresses problems of poverty, homelessness, aging, domestic violence and mental health disorders. In cooperation with the Institute of Sociology at the University of Poznan, students and faculty will use frameworks such as multiculturalism, social integration, feminism and determinants of social exclusion to understand Polish policy responses to various social phenomena. Students will have opportunities to engage government officials, practicing social workers, and some of Poland's most prominent scholars in conversation. In addition to lectures and workshops, the program includes guided tours of neighborhoods and social institutions. Apply Today!
