Scholarships 

Currently there are three scholarships available through the CIE: 

  • The Dalton Scholarship for International Internships
  • The Jo Dewitt International Explorer Scholarship
  • The Class of ’58 Scholarship 


These scholarships are described below including the purpose and history of the funds, the criteria used to determine who will be awarded these funds, the application process to apply for a scholarship, and the award mechanism.

 

The Dalton Scholarship for International Internships

 

The Dalton Scholarship is designed to help support students who are completing international internships. The scholarship is offered annually and can be awarded to one student or to multiple students. The amount of the award is determined by the committee making the award decisions.

Students who are awarded a scholarship will be granted the funds through their student account via financial aid. The PCIE office will inform the Financial Aid office of the award and these funds will be added to the student’s account.

The Jo Dewitt International Explorer Scholarship


The Jo Dewitt International Explorer scholarship allows two $500 scholarships to be awarded annually to students participating in language immersion or semester abroad programs. This fund rewards those who have actively created a unique international experience for themselves by extending their travels, undertaking service projects or by getting more closely in touch with the local culture.

Students are asked to complete the application form as well as write an essay detailing the type of experience they will have abroad, why they selected this experience, how the experience will benefit them in the future with either work or continued study, and how they plan to make this experience above and beyond what is provided for them in through JBIP funds, such as volunteer work, travel, or other service and unique opportunities abroad. The essay will be the main determining factor in the recipients of the scholarship, but the committee will also take into account GPA, previous travel abroad, and program information such as location, selectivity of program, and other similar factors.

The PCIE will inform Student Financial Services of the award and these funds will be added to the student’s account. Students awarded this scholarship are also required to keep the PCIE office informed of their service and travel while abroad, showing the truly extraordinary adventure that the student is having and allowing the donor to be kept updated on the use of the funds.

The Class of ’58 Scholarship

Two $500 scholarships are awarded annually to students participating in John Belk International Program short-term faculty-led programs. The purpose of the scholarship is to reward students who have put extra time and energy into preparing for this life-changing adventure.

Students who are awarded a scholarship will be granted the funds through their student account via financial aid. The PCIE will inform Student Financial Services of the award and these funds will be added to the student’s account. Students are required to follow up in the PCIE after the program has concluded. Students will be asked to prepare a short essay for the donors explaining the adventure they had abroad, how the prep course prepared them to travel, and how the scholarship helped them personally with this program. 

More information about each scholarship and the applications can be found on the PCIE MyQueens department page.
