21st Century Scwartzman Scholars Program
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.
Breaking news: Applications for the yearlong Schwarzman Scholars program at Tsinghua University became available Wednesday morning, April 15, 2015, in the wake of a major real-estate acquisition deal for the financial firm. Mr. Schwarzman's $100-million gift to start create the program led to his 23rd place ranking on The Chronicle's 2014 list of America's most generous donors. According to the Times article, he has raised $333-million for the program and plans to raise his fundraising target to $400-million.

Around the World Travel-Study Grant
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.

Crane-Rogers Foundation
Institute of Current World Affairs Fellowships
Deadlines : August 1, initial letters of interest; September 1, invited applications
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
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.

Exceptions have been made for unusual languages or situations, but these are rare. Candidates must be under 36 years of age at the time of the due date for the initial letter of interest.

Scholarships may be recommended to you at different times throughout the year as applications become available, so we suggest visiting MSU Scholarships often. Please keep in mind this section lists scholarships available regardless if you are eligible or not. Please note that some scholarships utilize an "Auto-Match" feature which will not require you to apply directly for the scholarship to be considered eligible. These scholarships will be indicated by the word "None" in the Action column. For scholarships for which you need to apply, please make a note of the deadline, as late submissions will not be accepted. Admitted students who have paid their deposit and currently enrolled students: Sign in using your MSU NetID and password to begin the scholarship application process. Once logged in, the system will automatically direct you to required applications.

If you have access to the world wide web and are willing to fill in the online forms, this service promises a free customized list of financial aid sources. FastWeb is actually a searchable database of more than 400,000 private sector scholarships, fellowships, grants, and loans from more than 3,000 sources for all levels of higher education. First-time visitors have to register (first and last name and a user ID), then complete a profile, including background and fields of study. 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.
