Southern Oregon University International Cultural Services Program Up to $9000 in Grants

clip_image012

The Southern Oregon University (SOU) International Cultural Services Program (ICSP) provides approximately 20 international undergraduate and graduate students with grants of about $9000 USD per academic year ($3,000 USD per term) toward tuition at SOU. Partial grants are sometimes awarded. Once accepted to this competitive program, students who perform satisfactorily are normally able to continue with ICSP support until they complete their program at SOU.

A unique factor of this grant is “cultural service”. Students participating in the program devote some 3 hours per week (80 hours per academic year) to volunteer service, usually consisting of making presentations about their countries and cultures in local schools.

In order to qualify, please note that:

– The full range of criteria that one would expect will be considered, including academic excellence as demonstrated by grades and other achievement (minimum GPA is 2.75 for undergraduate and 3.0 for graduate students), the student’s own written application, an interview when possible, and letters of recommendation. Demonstration of financial need is also taken into consideration.

– For ICSP grants, those selected must also have excellent and clear spoken English and the ability to represent their country effectively in public. For both programs, we also strive to achieve some geographical balance in participation.
