Program Description:
Daniel J. Curran and Claire M. Renzetti Scholarship Fund for International Studies

The fund supports scholarships for University of Dayton undergraduate students with demonstrated financial need (in excess of $10,000 annually) who wish to travel internationally in specific university-sponsored international programs and service activities. Approximately seventy five per cent of available funds will support students participating in international human rights or service programs (including ETHOS) in Africa, South America, and Asia. Additionally, up to twenty five per cent will support students participating in the semester-long or summer programs to the University of Dayton China Institute. Students traveling to Malawi for a UD-sponsored program may be considered with the additional condition that this is their first time studying abroad.

 Criteria for selection:
  • Funding can be used toward support of UD-sponsored international human rights and service programs (including ETHOS) in Africa, South America, and Asia, semester-long programs to The China Institute or UD programs to Malawi.
  • Applicants must be studying abroad for the first time.
  • Priority will be given to students participating in international human rights and service programs.
  • Applications are for individual students and will not apply toward a group fund-raising effort.
  • Financial need will be determined by FAFSA for all U.S. students and will be based on available information at the time of the application. International students will establish need based on financial documentation submitted for immigration records and a letter from their parent/guardian describing the family financial situation.
  • All other grants and aid that are received and applied towards the international experience will be taken into consideration by the committee when considering awards. 

Candidate requirements:

  • Be a full-time undergraduate student with a GPA of 2.5 or higher and be in good disciplinary standing with the university.
  • Have completed 60 semester hours of credit toward their degree.  A student with fewer than 60 semester credit hours may apply for funding if s/he demonstrates that an early international experience best fits the academic plan and/or course of study.
  • Submit an application proposal with a detailed description of the proposed activity including budget and timetable, as well as pertinent background and skills. Only one proposal per cycle may be submitted. Incomplete applications will not be accepted.
  • Share the results of their international experience with the campus community upon their return to the U.S.

Some of the criteria the committee members may use to review application:

  • Connection between the proposed overseas experience and student academic goals
  • Quality of student proposal/application
  • Financial needs
  • Education abroad destination (priority given to students pursuing activities in traditionally underrepresented locations in education abroad)
  • Total cost of program
  • Award received from other scholarship funds (Hull, CIP summer scholarship, and the Tobias Scholarship).

Deadline and notification:

  • An application proposal must be submitted by 11:59pm on Wednesday, February 23, 2018 to be eligible for committee review.
  • The review committee will review the proposals and applicants will be notified in mid to late March.
  • Please submit your proposal application and budget through the "Apply" link above by the deadline for consideration
