Univ. of Oregon Scholarship Opportunity

The below is quoted directly from an email circulated by the University of Oregon. For more information, please contact Megan Sullivan (contact info at end of email):

Dear International Educator Colleague,

My name is Megan Sullivan and I'm an International student advisor at the University of Oregon. The University of Oregon offers many scholarship opportunities for international students and one specifically to students from the Pacific Island Nations. I have attached a pdf with more information for you to review. If you know of students who are interested in coming to the University of Oregon please share this with them via email or post it on your publications board.  

I would like to specifically call your attention to one of the International Affiars Endowed scholarships that is offered specifically to students from the Pacific Island Nations. Please see the desc-ription below. Last year we were unable to award this scholarship because we had no applicants. Please help us to reach students from these nations to provide them with this opportunity.

Maradel Gale/Florence Krummel Pacific Island Scholarship: Established by Maradel Krummel Gale, University of Oregon alumna, (J.D., 1974) and associate professor emerita of sustainable community development in the Department of Planning, Public Policy and Management (PPPM). One scholarship of approximately $3,000 may be awarded each year. New and continuing students from the Pacific Island nations of Micronesia, Polynesia or Melanesia, including the Federated States of Micronesia, the Republic of the Marshall Islands, the Republic of Palau, the Cook Islands, Fiji, Kiribati, Nauru, Niue, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tonga, Tuvalu, and Vanuatu may apply. Selection of recipients for this scholarship shall give priority to applicants who are fluent in a language indigenous to the islands, such as Belauan, Yapese, Satawalese, Marshallese, Samoan, Pohnpeian, Cook Islands Maori, Fijian, Bislama, or other recognized island languages.

We appreciate your help informing students of the opportunities that are available to them. If you have any questions please let me know.

Megan
