Study Abroad in Sweden Summer 2019

Summer 2019 Design/Build Studio in Sweden – “A” Term – June 14th, 2019 – July 14th, 2019

In collaboration with students from HDK-Steneby, a crafts school based in Gothenberg, but physically located in Dals Langed, we will collaborate to create a landmark sculptural observation tower, as a feature that provides an identity and wayfinding mechanism for the community.

The feature should reflect the craft traditions of the area. A design has already been vetted and approved by the authorities and local non-profit supporting the project. Students will spend up to a week finalizing the details and three weeks to build it. This feature will build off of work completed last summer: a sauna, outdoor kitchen and a gathering area that is located close to the site.

We will live and study in Dals Langed and use the HDK-Steneby facilities for accommodation, eating and classes. The Dals Langed environment is one of renowned natural beauty and is rural in character, with extensive lakes, canals and woodlands. It is heavily populated by refugees from Syria.

The students will learn about issues of immigration, displacement and assimilation and the perspectives of the refugees and host Swedish populations. The lens, through which we will be viewing and learning about the global issues of refugee migration, will be unique and authentic.

In addition to participating in this collaborative project, we will visit Stockholm, the largest city in Sweden, with wonderful historic buildings, contemporary squares and plazas and world class museums. We will also visit Gothenburg, the second largest city in Sweden, to tour the historic fabric, visit the re-known craft museums and sections of the city under-going urban revitalization. Additional field trips will include canoeing and kayaking the Dals Langed historic canal system and hiking the surrounding hills and forests.

Students’ room, board and field trips are covered by the program fee. Students airfare is not covered by the program.

Please see attached poster.

Applications are due January 31st, 2019. All students are welcome to apply. There will be three Information Meetings: Tuesday, Jan. 15th, 2019, Noon, Gould Hall, Room 312; Thursday, Jan. 17th, 2019, Noon, Gould Hall Room 312; Wednesday, Jan. 23rd, 2019, 12:30 pm, Gould Hall Room 312.

Undergraduate scholarship opportunity – study in Canada!

UBC has some pretty cool programs for the environment and food.

The Canadian Studies Center, housed at the Jackson School of International Studies, is excited to invite undergraduate students to apply for our generous scholarship to study in Vancouver or Victoria B.C. for an academic year!

The Corbett British Columbia-Washington InternationalExchange Program offers students from Washington state and British Columbia $10,000 to study across the border and immerse themselves in the distinct cultural, political, and environmental issues of the Pacific Northwest. This exchange is a unique opportunity to take your studies to a new setting and experience the similarities and differences in these closely-related border cities. Canada-U.S. relations are increasingly critical, and there is no better time to learn more about the longest peaceful border relationship in history.

There are no major requirements, and students are welcome to craft their studies for the year as they wish. Preference is given to students who have completed high school in Washington state. Applications for the 2019-2020 academic year are due to the UW Study Abroad office by January 15.

Interested students are encouraged to contact Program Manager Marion Ferguson at marionf2 for more information.

Beinecke Scholarship for juniors planning for graduate study in Arts, Humanities, Social Sciences

Scholarship opportunity available for undergraduates planning ahead for graduate studies in arts, humanities and social science fields. The Beinecke Scholarship hopes to reduce financial barriers to graduate study for academically strong “juniors” (i.e. those planning graduation between December 2019 and August 2020). Freshmen and sophomores may also appreciate learning about this opportunity now for application in future years. Eligibility details are included below.

Beinecke Scholarship for juniors in arts, humanities & social science fields

The Beinecke Scholarship seeks to encourage and enable highly motivated students to pursue opportunities available to them and to be courageous in the selection of a graduate course of study in the arts, humanities and social sciences. The scholarship provides $34,000 for a research-focused master’s or doctoral program in the arts, humanities or social sciences to juniors (based on graduation date) of exceptional ability, achievement, and who have financial need.

Students must be nominated to compete for this scholarship, and the UW is able to nominate one student per year to compete for this national award. Students from all 3 campuses are welcome to apply for nomination.

If you are considering graduate studies in an arts, humanities or social science field, have a passion for that field, and financial need, consider applying! Each scholar receives $4,000 immediately prior to entering graduate school and an additional $30,000 while attending graduate school. There are no geographic restrictions on the use of the scholarship, and recipients are allowed to supplement the award with other scholarships, assistantships and research grants.

UW application deadline: Jan. 8, 2019, 11:59pm

UW application and nomination information: https://expd.uw.edu/expo/scholarships/beinecke

UW online application: https://expo.uw.edu/expo/apply/523

Eligibility:

To be eligible for this scholarship, a student must:

· Have demonstrated superior standards of intellectual ability, scholastic achievement and personal promise during their undergraduate career.

· Be a college junior pursuing a bachelor’s degree during the 2018-2019 academic year. “Junior” means a student who plans to continue full-time undergraduate study and who expects to receive a baccalaureate degree between December 2019 and August 2020.

· Plan to enter a research-focused master’s or doctoral program in the arts, humanities or social sciences. Students in the social sciences who plan to pursue graduate study in neuroscience should not apply for a Beinecke Scholarship. Also, students who plan to pursue professional school programs that emphasize skills and practical analysis over theory and research (such as law, business, education, architecture, journalism, clinical psychology, social work, etc.), are not competitive for selection at the national level.

· Be a United States citizen, or a United States national from American Samoa or the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands.

· Have a documented history of receiving need-based financial aid during their undergraduate years. Primary evidence of meeting this criterion is a student’s history of receiving need-based institutional, state or federal grants-in-aid. An institutional financial aid officer will be required to complete a Financial Data Sheet certifying that the student meets this criterion. During the selection process, the amount of financial need will be one of the factors considered with preference being given to candidates for whom the awarding of a scholarship would significantly increase the likelihood of the student’s being able to attend graduate school.

Information Sessions:

To learn more about this opportunity and the UW application and nomination process, please attend a Beinecke Scholarship Information Session:

· Wednesday, Nov. 14, 2018, 12:30pm, MGH 136

Students with talent in the sciences, especially those relating to food, natural resources and human sciences, will make the research discoveries of tomorrow. Today, they need training to realize their potential. Funding education can be a challenge, especially for students from communities that are under-represented in the scientific workforce. NIFA has two types of funding options to ensure more talented students can achieve their research career goals in agriculture.

HOW RESEARCH CHANGED MELISSA’S LIFE

As a first-generation transfer student, Melissa Krook came to the UW knowing she wanted to study psychology, and cautiously dreaming about a career as a research psychologist. After participating in the Undergraduate Research Program, she was certain that was the career path for her. Now, she’s hard at work on several applications and is eager to share her story and tips with you.

Thank you to our dedicated committee members
UAA-OMSFA-Heart icon-50x44.pngThank you Fulbright, Luce and Martin scholarship champions! Although fall quarter just started, you have already been hard at work supporting scholarship applicants. We are so appreciative of your time and efforts! Forty-six faculty, staff, post-docs and retirees dedicated their time on a Saturday to interview UW students applying for the Fulbright U.S. Student Program. Our Luce Scholars Program campus selection committee reviewed and interviewed candidates earlier this month as well. And the Martin Family Foundation campus committee and board members reviewed applications and interviewed candidates throughout the summer. Thank you!

— Robin Chang, Director, and Emily Smith, Assistant Director
