The University of California Education Abroad Program is honored to announce the Jasmine Jahanshahi Scholarship Award. Recipients of the award will be undergraduate students enrolled at the University of California, who have been accepted to a semester- or year-long immersion program of the UC Education Abroad Program (UCEAP), and who have demonstrated academic excellence and a strong commitment to global issues.
The scholarship is being established in memory of Jasmine Jahanshahi, a UCEAP and UC Berkeley student who participated in the 2010-2011 program at Sciences Po, in Paris, France with a goal to foster deeper global connections. Two scholarship awards in the amount of $2,500 each will be made available yearly, starting in the 2011-12 academic year. Details will be made public as soon as possible. Contact Andrea Delap, Sr. Analyst firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
“To truly understand a country – its social tensions, linguistic subtleties, culture, one must have a first hand account; one must spend a significant amount of time in the country.”
