International Pioneers Scholar Team
Thanks to funding provided by Provost Joanne Passaro, the Carroll Scholars Center is pleased to announce that in 2014, it will again accept applications for an International Pioneer Scholar team. Of the Pioneer Scholars chosen for 2014, one might receive funding to travel abroad as part of the summer project.
The scholar/mentor team chosen as the International Pioneer Scholar team will receive the usual stipends ($3,000 for the student and $1,500 for the faculty member), plus the usual budget of $500 for project-related expenses. In addition, the university will offer up to $5,000 to support travel outside the United States for the scholar and mentor. Funds may be used for airfare and in-country transportation, visa(s) and entry/exit fees, lodging, meals and related research expenses. A list of itemized expenses will be required with the application and are subject to approval.
If you are applying for an International Pioneer Scholarship, consider consulting with the Director of International Education, Kathy Hammett, to determine if there are any special considerations to take into account regarding your travel destination and plans.
The application for the International Pioneer Scholar team must demonstrate a direct connection between the proposed travel and the goals of the research/creative project. The scholar and mentor should plan to travel together. This should not be a situation in which the mentor is abroad for the summer and the scholar joins him/her for a short time. The travel should be for the purposes of working on the project only, and the team’s application must demonstrate that the scholar and mentor will work closely together during the time abroad.
Applications for the Pioneer Scholars Program are due at 5 p.m. Friday, March 7, 2014. If you have questions about any aspect of the Pioneer Scholars Program, contact Dr. Christopher May at 262.524.7250 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
