The Ole Miss Women’s Council Giving Society for International Studies or Internships

The Ole Miss Women’s Council for Philanthropy sponsors innovative programs that attract and develop students through leadership, scholarship and mentorship. Because the classroom is just one dimension of a student’s learning experience, the Council endorsed The Global Leadership Circle. This international studies/internships component will enable students to expand their horizons, appreciate other countries and cultures, and continue their commitment to making the world a better place.

Your gift of $25,000 ($5,000 per year for five years), which may be named in honor or memory of a loved one, covers expenses for scholars pursuing international studies or internships.

The Selection Process

OMWC scholars entering their junior or senior year will be eligible provided they have at least a 3.0 GPA, which must be maintained whether studying internationally or interning. The application will be available either online or in the office of the OMWC program coordinator. If there are more scholarships available than applicants, the Office of International Studies will award the available scholarships to non-OMWC students.
