The Nationality Rooms and Intercultural Exchange Programs
The Nationality Rooms have awarded scholarships for summer study abroad annually since 1948. The purpose of the awards is to enable University of Pittsburgh students to have an in-depth immersion in another culture for at least five weeks. It is important that applicants choose a program that will maximize their contact with the populace abroad and be accepted by the University for credit. It is through the farsightedness and generosity of the Nationality Rooms committees and their friends, who have raised more than $1,500,000 to provide these important intercultural exchange opportunities. It is strongly suggested that students begin the application process in November to allow sufficient time to request references, prepare essays and, if applicable, prepare research proposals.
