Purdue University Northwest (PNW), together with Temple University, leader of the widespread #YouAreWelcomeHere social media campaign to encourage international students to study in the United States, is launching a national scholarship program for incoming international students for fall 2019. Five other U.S. college and university partners have also joined the effort. This new scholarship will provide financial support for incoming international students who are committed to furthering the #YouAreWelcomeHere message through intercultural exchange that bridges divides at their future campuses and beyond. Participating colleges and universities will offer an annual, renewable scholarship that covers a minimum of 50 percent of recipients’ tuition. Those interested can apply for the scholarship at pnw.edu/youarewelcomehere. Jessica Sandberg, Temple University’s director of international admissions and originator of the campaign will present more details of this new initiative to her international education colleagues at the annual NAFSA: Association of International Educators conference in Philadelphia at 3 p.m. Thursday, May 31. Visit youarewelcomehereusa.org for more information.
