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 honors Anita Herzfeld, professor emerita of Latin American and 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 award is for study in any Latin American country.
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. The award is for study in a Spanish-speaking country.
The Less Commonly Taught Languages Scholarshipsgive first priority to students wishing to travel to Latin America or the Caribbean to learn a less commonly taught and/or indigenous language (e.g. Miskitu in Nicaragua, Haitian Creole, etc.).
All applicants will be required to submit the following documents. Applicants who have not begun an application for a study abroad program will not be eligible for the scholarship.
