A Smattering of International Scholarships Without an Official Wesleyan Contact:

American-Scandinavian Foundation Fellowships

Blakemore Foundation Fellowships:
One year of advanced study of an Asian language in Asia for US citizens and permanent residents who have a college degree and plan to use an Asian language in their careers.

Gates Cambridge Scholarships: you must be accepted to Cambridge in order to apply for the scholarship, so visit the web site, see how the process works, and visit the Cambridge site links to figure out what you'll apply to do. Cambridge applications are due in the fall. Be sure to let me know you're applying so we can work together on your statement, even though you won't go through a selection committee on campus (unless you'd like the interview practice).

Rotary Ambassadorial Scholarships: organized through your home-town Rotary Club, these scholarships aim to further international understanding and friendly relations among people of different countries and geographical areas. More information can be found at:

WH&T IF "Water Here and There, International Fellows":
The Association for International Practical Training (AIPT) and the International Fund for China's Environment (IFCE) is seeking emerging young professionals interested in participating in "Water Here and There, International Fellows" (WH&T IF), an international program that explores international collaboration on global water issues. Supported in part by a grant from the U.S. Department of State, this program involves an exchange of individuals interested in enhancing knowledge of project management on an international level, developing networks of like-minded professionals in China and exploring international partnerships that can yield future opportunities for research and other collaboration.
