The School of Public and International Affairs believes international education is vital to the educational mission of SPIA and encourages students to pursue foreign study. As part of that mission, SPIA sponsors need-based scholarships for students majoring in political science and international affairs, who may not be able to participate due to financial considerations. Scholarships are available for these SPIA Study Abroad programs: Stellenbosch, South Africa; Verona, Italy (spring and summer); China Maymester; SPIA at Oxford, England; and SPIA at Liverpool, England. Applications for 2016 SPIA Study Abroad Scholarships are due in late September every fall.
