The West Virginia University Extension Service invites international students who are currently freshmen or sophomores to apply for the West Virginia Community Educational Outreach Service (WVCEOS) International Student Scholarship for the upcoming academic year. The scholarship provides an award of $2,500 plus tuition waiver for one academic year with the possibility of renewal for a second year. Preference is given to students who are enrolled in a field of study related to a human service endeavor. Appropriate fields include, but are not limited to, family resources, social work, counseling, education, health professions, and agricultural and Extension education.
The student is expected to develop a lesson plan about their country for study by the Community Educational Outreach Service in West Virginia. After the spring semester next year, the student will travel throughout the state for two months to visit WVCEOS clubs and other WVU Extension related programs, and stay with host families.
