UO/Otago Indigenous Studies Exchange Scholarship Program
The UO-Otago Indigenous Studies Exchange (ISE) program provides unique opportunities for select students from each campus to immerse themselves in Native American and Indigenous Studies academic and cultural activities in an international context. The Office of International Affairs will offer full scholarships* to two UO students to participate in the inaugural cohort during the Fall 2019 Semester (July – November) at the University of Otago.
Native American and Indigenous Studies (NAIS) Minors at the University of Oregon will have the opportunity to explore Indigenous sovereignty and Native studies through the lens of the University of Otago’s Te Tumu School of Maori Pacific and Indigenous Studies programs, an experience designed to help students frame their understanding of Native American and Indigenous Studies topics in the United States within a broader international Indigenous Studies perspective. Similarly, University of Otago students will have the opportunity to live with, learn from, and work alongside Native American students, Native American Studies minors, and tribal communities in and around the University of Oregon.
The UO-Otago ISE Scholarship will cover the full cost of tuition, room and board, airfare, passport and visa application fees (if applicable), and additional fees associated with required course or extra-curricular activities (if applicable).
