CIEE: Robert B. Bailey Scholarship
These awards are named in honor of Robert B. Bailey III, former member of CIEE's Board of Directors and Professor of Sociology and Director of Study Abroad at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls.
The Robert B. Bailey Scholarship is intended to promote the participation in CIEE programs of individuals or members of groups that have traditionally been underrepresented in study abroad, especially ethnic minority students.
Beginning in spring 2009, award amounts are $1,500 for semester or yearlong programs and $500 for summer programs. The award is applied toward the applicant's CIEE program fee.
- Available to CIEE Study Center applicants only. The applicant must be self-identified as belonging to an underrepresented group.
In your Scholarship Essay, please answer the following additional questions:
- Please specify the group to which you belong and which you believe is underrepresented in study abroad. How does your membership in that underrepresented group factor into your choice of program/destination?
- As a member of an underrepresented group, how do you plan to integrate this international experience into future academic, community, professional, and extracurricular activities?
