Duttenhaver Scholarship

The Duttenhaver Scholars Program provides over 25 awards of $5,000 each to students who participate in year-long UCEAP programs. UCEAP and the donor, Linda Duttenhaver, value the benefits that come with a year-long program and want to encourage and assist students who are considering this option. Selections are based on academic performance and financial need. Applicants must have a passion for studying abroad and a willingness to embrace and learn from the host country’s customs, language, and culture.
