Hendrix-Murphy Study Abroad Scholarships support students who enroll at universities around the world for a semester or year of study abroad and whose curriculum content is at least 50% literature or language, as approved by the Foundation. They are not applicable to summer sessions--only regular semester-long or year-long study.
Apply for study abroad through the general application process set forth by the Study Abroad Office. If you are gauged to be eligible for a Murphy Study Abroad Scholarship, on the basis of your plan of study, you will be given an application form to fill out and submit to the Hendrix-Murphy Foundation. Decisions are made by the Hendrix-Murphy Foundation, and award amounts are set by the International Programs Office in coordination with Financial Aid, usually by late March.
If you are awarded a scholarship, it will be applied directly to tuition costs at your target institution, through Hendrix's Office of Financial Aid.
To be eligible for the Study Abroad Scholarship, the Foundation must approve your course of study. At least 50% of your course load must be the study or literature or the study of language--not other subjects taken in another language--as defined by Foundation policy.
