Study abroad: Plan ahead for scholarships in Northern Ireland or developing countries

The National Security Education Program (NSEP) offers scholarships for a summer, semester or year abroad. NSEP scholarships are available to undergraduates planning to study abroad in Africa, Asia, Central and Eastern Europe, the NIS, Latin America and the Caribbean, or the Middle East.

Scholarship amounts vary, but maximum benefits are $8,000 for a summer program, $10,000 for a semester program and $20,000 for yearlong.

The application deadline is Jan. 15, 2006. 

Thinking about studying in Northern Ireland? Consider applying for a scholarship through the Irish American Scholars Program. Each year, St. Thomas nominates two undergraduate students for a full-tuition scholarship to study for a semester or year at a Northern Irish university.

The application deadline for the 2006-2007 academic year is Jan. 10, 2006.
