Established through a bequest from Eleanor B. Cowen, in memory of her mother, Ester Catherine Harmon, this fund is used to provide Study Abroad Scholarships for students accepted into the Teacher Education Program at Iowa State University to enhance their skills in other cultures and in languages other than English.
This scholarship is administered by the Department of Curriculum and Instruction for students participating in a student teaching experience abroad at the elementary school level in a foreign language or who are participating in a foreign language study abroad experience. Preference given to those with demonstrated financial need (FAFSA).
A foreign language study abroad award is renewable for a student teaching abroad in the language.
Amount: Award equals the teaching/study abroad program fee. For applicants meeting the first preference criteria described under Eligibility requirements, additional funding for housing and meals is provided. All award levels are subject to funding availability.
Important: To demonstrate financial need, be sure to fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA is made available electronically in late November.
