Description: IIS is seeking to award a series of merit scholarships of up to $2000 each to support undergraduate research in any area of international studies. Research may be conducted while in EAP, or independently. The scholarship recipients will be called IIS Junior Scholars. After completing their research projects, all Junior Scholars are required to submit a four-page research summary and attend the IIS Junior Scholars Conference held on-campus at the end of the 2011-2012 academic year. Several Junior Scholars will be asked to present their work in poster format at the Junior Scholars Conference. Junior Scholars with the strongest research project, as determined by an IIS faculty panel, will each receive an additional $1000 prize. There will also be an opportunity to compete for the Best Poster Award, an additional $250 prize.
Eligibility: Open to any UC Berkeley junior or senior with a minimum 3.5 GPA who has completed at least one semester of study in residence at Berkeley. All majors are eligible and encouraged to apply.
Award Amount: Up to $2000 with the opportunity to win an additional $1000 for best research project and an additional $250 for best poster.
