2019-20 Scholarship Opportunity – Fred Zahn

This is one of the scholarships on the UW Study Abroad Scholarship Guide.

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1-zsTHWaDqle4UMKlq7HOzX0eUZ1WQzMM/view

On the guide, we put the deadline month as June because that is what it was last year. This year, however, I just learned that it is March 15th which I know is probably way too soon for students to get their applications in. I am working with the Office of Student Financial Aid to get a sizable application extension which there is a good chance that will happen because I know they only received two applications thus far, please put this scholarship on the radar of your students . I will be in touch with further information if deadline extensions are granted.
