UCEAP Global Scholarship

Spring & Winter 2024

UCEAP offers scholarships for students of all backgrounds and majors, and for all kinds of study abroad programs. All UC students participating on a UCEAP program are eligible to apply for a UCEAP Global Scholarship. The award selections will be primarily based on academic merit and integration of a selected UCEAP program into a student’s academic and career goals, as demonstrated in a personal statement. $1,000 for summer or $2,000 for fall, spring, winter and year terms abroad will be distributed to those selected by a competitive review process.

    Limit your essay to 750 words. Keep it focused, with concise and clear writing. Evaluators place great value on coherent writing, proper grammar, and accurate spelling. Have someone review your essay with these requirements in mind. We strongly advise all students to take advantage of writing resources available on campus.

    When preparing to write your personal statement, think about how you will learn and grow from your time abroad. The selection committee is looking for students who approach the privilege of studying abroad with humility, who will be keen observers of their host country, and who will be open to new experiences.

    What sparked your interest in studying abroad?

    How will your program abroad relate to your academic, career and/or personal goals?

    What academic preparation have you done for your program?

    If you are a student with financial need, please discuss how this has impacted your decision to study abroad.

    How do you hope to grow personally while abroad?

    If you are a student who identifies with a cohort that is traditionally underrepresented on study abroad programs, please discuss how this has impacted your decision to study abroad. Traditionally underrepresented students on UCEAP programs include, but are not limited to, students who have transferred to the UC from a community college or state university, veterans, first-generation college students, students on programs where the majority of classes are taught in a language other than English, and students who spend a full year abroad (two semesters or three quarters).
