ISO Scholarship

The International Studies Office wishes to support undergraduate students who demonstrate the interest and inclination to become global citizens. The ISO Scholarship supports this initiative and the Scholarship Committee makes awards based on a number of factors, including the quality of the application and academic merit. Scholarship award amounts vary and depend upon the qualifications of the applicant pool. Students may receive up to $3000 for summer, $5000 for semester, and $8000 for academic year programs.

Award recipients are expected to share their experience with the UVA community through writing, photography, or video.
