USA Foundation celebrates 10 years with the launch of an international exchange scholarship

Golden Gate Bridge

A new scholarship to facilitate international study exchange between the University of Tasmania and its partner institutions in the United States has been launched to celebrate the ten year anniversary of the USA Foundation.

Two University of Tasmania USA Exchange Scholarships, valued at $5,000 each, have been made possible by the collective generosity of the University of Tasmania Foundation USA Board of Directors and US-based alumni and friends of the University.

The scholarships will provide two talented students with the financial support necessary to undertake the life-changing experience of an international exchange: one University of Tasmania student participating in an international exchange at a partner institute in the US, and an American student from a partner institute seeking to study at the University of Tasmania.

“The University of Tasmania is deeply thankful for the generosity of our supporters in the United States, which has enabled the University of Tasmania USA Exchange Scholarship,” Executive Director of Advancement, Young Dawkins said.

“This scholarship will provide the transformative opportunity of a study abroad experience to two talented students, and strengthen ties between the University and our partner institutions in the US.”

Since its establishment in 2007, the generosity of alumni and friends in the US has enabled the Foundation USA to direct over $2.5 Million to vital initiatives at the University.

Applications for the University of Tasmania USA Exchange Scholarship open in May 2018.
