New Scholarships for Study Abroad in Ireland!

Case Western Reserve University received a $7,500 Generation Study Abroad Grant from the Institute of International Education (IIE) and the Irish government to support new scholarships for study abroad in Ireland. The Office of Education Abroad will match this funding and award at least six scholarships of $2,500 each to students.

The scholarships can be used for the cost of tuition, books, and travel related to study, service learning, or internships abroad between Fall 2015 and Spring 2016.

The goal of the IIE Generation Study Abroad Scholarships is to help make study abroad opportunities possible for more U.S. students from a broad range of backgrounds.  “The IIE Generation Study Abroad Scholarships will give more students – and more underrepresented students -- the opportunity to gain international experience, which is one of the most important components of a 21st-century education,” said Institute of International Education President and Chief Executive Officer Allan E. Goodman. 

CWRU was one of ten partner colleges and universities selected to receive funding to support scholarships for study abroad in Ireland. The campuses were selected based on applications submitted describing institutional progress made in study abroad and how these student scholarships will help further increase and diversify study abroad on their campus.

The Office of Education Abroad will release information on the application process soon. Students who are interested in learning more can email
