Asia Center Scholarships for study in Asia


The UK Asia Center is pleased to offer a limited number of scholarships to UK undergraduates for study in Asia during Summer or Fall 2013.

Over the past several years, the Asia Center has offered financial assistants to UK undergraduates who wish to expand their knowledge of the region through education abroad. This year, the competition is open to UK undergraduates from any college and major. The maximum scholarship will be $2,000. Applications are due by March 1, 2013 to 208 Bradley Hall.

All applications will be evaluated by the Asia Center Scholarship Committee, primarily on the basis of the applicant’s academic achievement, and the strength and merits of the program in Asia as they relate to the student’s overall academic goals.  Priority will be given to students who plan to study in Asia for a semester or more and in general longer programs will be favored over shorter programs, and additional consideration will be given to the financial demands of the program.
