21st Century Scwartzman Scholars Program (Coming Soon)
http://mobile.nytimes.com/blogs/dealbook/2013/04/22/schwarzmans-scholarship-in-china/
A U.S. private equity tycoon announced Sunday the establishment of a $300 million endowed scholarship program in China for students from around the world, and billed it as a rival to the prestigious Rhodes Scholarship. Stephen A. Schwarzman, founder of the private equity firm Blackstone, said he would give $100 million as a personal gift and raise another $200 million to endow the Schwarzman Scholars program at Beijing's Tsinghua University. It will be the largest philanthropic gift with foreign money in China's history, according to the tycoon and the university. Forty-five percent of the students will hail from the United States, another 20 percent will come from China with the remaining students representing Europe, South Korea, Japan, and India. The 21st century Schwartzman Endowment emulates the world famous Rhodes Scholarship program established in 1902. The program is supposed to launch in 2016.

Around the World Travel-Study Grant
http://circumnavigators.org/?page_id=111
Deadline: Nov. 1
This year the Circumnavigators Club Foundation will award a fellowship worth up to $9000 for an around-the-world travel research project over the three-month period between the junior and senior year. The winner will prepare for the research project during the second semester of his or her junior year and spend the three summer months in actual travel and on-the-scene study. At the completion of the summer and upon return to the United States, the winner will submit a paper on the project and will speak to at least two Circumnavigators Foundation banquets during the succeeding nine months.
The proposal may be no more than four pages in length and must include a description of the project, a rationale for why this would be an interesting or important project to undertake, a proposed itinerary, and an explanation of the relationship of the proposed stops to the overall project purpose.
The trip itinerary must circumnavigate the globe and include stays in at least six countries on three continents. The research project must have substantive content in each of the countries, including wherever possible interactions with local people and groups. Examples of study projects include: youth movements; the death penalty; freedom of the press; care for the aged; the uses of technology in the elementary grades.
Both the school and the Circumnavigators Foundation are looking for interesting, pertinent, and globally-based topics, by persons who can easily think on their feet in any situation they might encounter abroad. Final selection will further be based on a number of factors, including: (a) merit of the subject to be studied, (b) student's academic record, (c) poise, maturity and communication skills, and (d) inherent discipline and enthusiasm of the candidates.
The Michigan Chapter of the Circumnavigators Club sponsors the local competition restricted to Michigan State, Wayne State, and University of Michigan students.
Back in high school, Nick Micinski won a national student award for a public service announcement he made that encouraged people to make a difference. Now the Michigan State University junior hopes to make a difference himself by circumnavigating the globe for a study project. Micinski, of Beulah, is the winner of an $8,000 Around the World grant from the Michigan Circumnavigators Foundation to undertake research on an issue of “global importance.” The summer project will take him to seven countries on four continents to study Muslim “diaspora,” or dispersion, and minority communities around the world.

CIC Traveling Scholar Program
http://www.cic.net/Home/Projects/SharedCourses/TScholar/Introduction.aspx
Since 1963, the Traveling Scholar Program has allowed doctoral students to spend up to a full academic year pursuing specialized courses of study, researching unique library collections, and working in advanced laboratories and facilities at other CIC institutions — including Michigan State University -- with no change in registration procedures from their home university or additional tuition. Doctoral-level students interested in the Traveling Scholar Program must first consult their advisor who will determine whether the off-campus opportunity is likely to enhance the student’s course of study and ascertain that it is not, in fact, available on the home campus. The instructor/advisor at the host campus must also approve before a student completes the online application.

CES Pre-Dissertation Fellowships fund two months’ travel to Europe to conduct the exploratory phase of a projected dissertation project in the social sciences or humanities which will require a subsequent stay in Europe. The program is intended to facilitate the transition from coursework to fieldwork, and to enable students to make rapid progress in refining their initial ideas into a feasible, interesting, and fundable doctoral project. Recipients are expected to use CES support to lay such research groundwork as determining the availability of archival materials, scouting possible field sites, testing research design, securing ties with relevant European scholars or institutions. Typically, they submit applications for dissertation research funding soon after completing CES-funded preliminary research.

Crane-Rogers Foundation
Institute of Current World Affairs Fellowships
http://www.icwa.org/Opportunities.asp
Deadlines : August 1, initial letters of interest; September 1, invited applications
WRITE: Institute of Current World Affairs The Institute of Current World Affairs provides promising individuals with an opportunity to develop a deep understanding of an issue, country, or region outside the United States and to share that understanding with a wider public. It does this by awarding fellowships at least two-years long to young women and men who demonstrate initiative, integrity, good communication skills, seriousness of purpose, and enthusiasm for their chosen fields. The Institute invests in individuals who have great expectations and shares with them the risk of uncertain results. The Institute hopes that its fellow will not only grow personally but make significant contributions to public life in the United States and beyond. The Institute frees the fellows from the demands and routine of their professional lives and gives them the time and resources to explore and to fulfill their intellectual promise through a self-designed program of study. Except within the expansive boundaries of "current world affairs," and with the geographic limitation that fellows must study outside the United States, the Institute's criteria are broad. Fellowship candidates must show they are able to carry out their proposed study topic but need not meet any specific educational or other prerequisites. The Institute actively pursues diversity. Fellowships are for self-designed, independent study only. Candidates must be under 36 years of age. While U.S. citizenship is not a requirement, candidates must show that a proposed fellowship holds promise to enrich public life in the United States by enhancing the understanding of foreign countries, cultures, and trends. FUNDING: The Institute provides full financial support for its fellows and their immediate families.

Financial Aid Basics for Advising Undergraduate International Students
http://www.nafsa.org/Find_Resources/Supporting_International_Students_And_Scholars/Network_Resources/International_Student_and_Scholar_Services/Financial_Aid_Basics_for_Advising_Undergraduate_International_Students/
Financial aid is perhaps the largest barrier students face when studying outside their home countries. This financial aid resource is designed to help international education professionals who advise students. This resource provides information primarily for nonimmigrant students (F-1, J-1, M-1, etc.). Information for permanent residents of the United States is also included. The Institute for International Education (IIE) reports in Open Doors 2005 that of the paid tuition and fees to attend a U.S. undergraduate institution in the 2004-05 academic year, 80.9 percent of payments came from personal and family sources. Minimal scholarship aid is available to international students, and most of it is reserved for graduate study. Generally, U.S. institutions offer little, if any, discount on tuition. Some public institutions will charge international students in-state tuition rather than charging out-of-state tuition and fees. Both private and public institutions may waive application fees in some situations. Web page provided by NAFSA.

The Institute of International Education, a New York-based non-profit organization, will administer the program through its Southern Regional Office in Houston, Texas under a grant from the Bureau. Established under the International Academic Opportunity Act of 2000, Gilman International Scholarships will provide up to $5,000 for American students to pursue overseas study for college credit. The Gilman Program aims to broaden and increase the study abroad population by aiding undergraduate students who are under financial constraints.

Scholar Rescue Fund
http://www.iie.org/en/What-We-Do/Emergency-Assistance
The Institute of International Education (IIE) has received an unprecedented gift of $10 million from the internationally-renowned economist/philanthropist Dr. Henry Kaufman to support the organization's Scholar Rescue Fund. Dr. Kaufman, who fled Nazi Germany with his family in the late 1930s, is strongly committed to ensuring the safety and security of scholars whose important academic contributions are jeopardized by repressive or dangerous regimes. The Scholar Rescue Fund has rescued over 50 scholars from 27 different countries since 2002, enabling them to continue their teaching and research and, essentially, saving their academic work. This effort returns IIE to its work in the 1930s when IIE’s Emergency Committee in Aid of Displaced Foreign Scholars helped more than 330 scholars fleeing persecution in Europe.

Registrants then receive a list of all currently relevant funding sources. The registration information is stored and can be used on subsequent visits. The entire sign-up process, and delivery of available funding sources, can be a bit tedious: about five to twenty minutes, depending on the connection speed. Approximately 500 new scholarships are added to the database daily, so registrants can stay current.
