Why the Class of 1964 Study Abroad Scholarship for Global Engagement?

This new scholarship has been established to honor the Class of 1964’s 50th reunion and will be directed toward undergraduate students with financial need who are participating in a Wheaton College study abroad program in a foreign country. The Class of 1964 Study Abroad Scholarship for Global Engagement is the first of its kind, since most previous study abroad opportunities have been sponsored by other schools. As part of Wheaton’s Strategic Priorities, the College is hoping to establish more study abroad programs using its own resources so that it can better prepare and follow-up with students who study abroad.
