SJSU Salzburg Scholars | Application

We are inviting applications from interested students to serve as SJSU Salzburg Scholars during 2017-2018.  This is a significant opportunity to broaden your awareness of critical global issues and strengthen your ability to succeed in a complex interconnected world.

SJSU Salzburg Scholars will enroll in a 16-day Faculty-Led Program (FLP) on Global Citizen-ship next summer (June 11-26, 2017) in Salzburg, Austria - a UN World Heritage Site that is located in the heart of Europe at the foot of the Austrian Alps.  The FLP includes a 1-week seminar held at Schloß Leopoldskron, with students from other US colleges and universities, followed by a 1-week session exploring historical and cultural aspects of the region.  After returning to campus, the Scholars will develop and implement a project during the academic year to help globalize San José State University.

SJSU Salzburg Scholars are chosen on the basis of three fundamental criteria: [1] excellence (in terms of their primary roles and responsibilities as students at SJSU); [2] leadership (in terms of their ability to mobilize others and work collaboratively with other students as well as faculty and administrators); and [3] leverage (in terms of their potential for amplifying the impact of their contributions on campus).

We anticipate selecting 12-15 SJSU Salzburg Scholars for 2017-2018 and expect to provide scholarships of $2,000 for each Scholar to help cover the costs of their participation.  Online applications are due by Sunday, November 13, 2016 @ 11:59 PM.  Prospective applicants are strongly encouraged to review information about this opportunity at the website for this FLP (http://www.sjsu.edu/gei/flp/programs/austria-makani/index.html), contacting the FLP Faculty Advisor, Professor Bobbi Makani (bobbi.makani@sjsu.edu), or by attending one of the following information sessions:

Wed 11/2/16 @ 11:00-12:00 in CL 118

Mon 11/7/16 @ 1:30-2:30 in CL 118
