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 are studying abroad for the first time and wish to travel internationally in specific university-sponsored international programs and service activities. Available funds will support students participating in international human rights or service programs in Africa, Latin America, and Asia. 

 Criteria for selection:
  • Funding can be used toward support of UD-sponsored international human rights and service programs in Africa, Latin America, and Asia.
  • Applicants must be studying abroad for the first time.
  • 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 in a public forum (e.g., Stander Symposium, class presentation) upon their return to the U.S.

Potential Candidate Review Points:

  • 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 the following deadlines to be considered by the review committee:
    • 11:59pm on February 1  for Summer experiences
    • 11:59pm on February 15 for Fall and Full Academic Year experiences.
    • 11:59pm on October 1 for January intersession and Spring experiences .
The review committee will review the proposals and applicants will be notified within one month of the deadline date.  Please submit your proposal application and budget to the Human Rights Center through the  Center for International Programs or use the apply button by the deadline for consideration.
