The Fulbright Scholarship allows graduating seniors to study, conduct an independent project, or teach English abroad.
The Gilman and Boren scholarships provide for or partial funding for graduate and undergraduate study abroad programs.
The RISE Scholarship permits undergraduate students in science, math, engineering, and technology disciplines to conduct research in Germany. Knowledge of German is not required.
The Udall Scholarship promotes leadership, education, collaboration, and conflict resolution in the areas of environment, public lands, and natural resources in order to strengthen Native nations, assist federal agencies and others to resolve environmental conflicts, and to encourage the continued use and appreciation of our nation’s rich resources.
