Center for Latin American & Caribbean Studies Scholarships
The Center for Latin American & Caribbean Studies (CLACS) offers several $500 scholarships. Students must be KU degree-seeking undergraduates who have applied to an academic year, semester, or summer (minimum four weeks) program and have a minimum 3.0 GPA. The Anita Herzfeld Award is for study in any Latin American country and the Pascal Scholarship is for study in a Spanish-speaking country. Students complete one application to be considered for both.
The Anita Herzfeld Award honors Anita Herzfeld, professor emerita of Latin American & Caribbean Studies, former director of the Office of Study Abroad, and beloved teacher and noted linguist who retired in 2012 after working to expand international education for KU students during a distinguished career spanning more than fifty years. The Lawrence G. and Nanette Pascal Scholarship is made by Larry Pascal in honor of his parents, who always supported his learning about new cultures.
