Bliss-Karns-Schwemmlein Scholarship for Study Abroad
This scholarship is established in honor of Max Bliss, Angus Karns and Arnold Schwemmlein. It is an endowed merit scholarship and its award shall be made to a full-time Juniata student who is eligible for, and who plans, an entire academic year of study in France, Germany, Russia or Spain. The student should be enrolled in a Juniata sponsored program, in which English is not the language of instruction.
Ordinarily, one scholarship will be made to a student for their junior year abroad.
Because study abroad usually entails somewhat greater costs for the student, this merit scholarship award is to supplement existing grant and aid funds that the student would normally be awarded—not to substitute for such other financial assistance.
A selection committee consisting of the President of the College, the Dean of International Programs and Dr. Michael Henderson shall choose the student. The committee shall base its selection on a review of the following:
- The candidate’s record of academic achievement at Juniata;
- The candidate’s demonstrated potential for future academic excellence;
- Letters of recommendation from two faculty members;
- A letter from the candidate outlining on how he/she might promote language study and international programs upon returning for the senior year at Juniata
Note: This award is handed out during spring convocation.
