New Northern Ireland Study Abroad Opportunity

George Fox’s already-robust study abroad program (30-plus international locations!) is adding yet another option in 2021 – in Northern Ireland.
The Northern Ireland Studies program will be offered in the fall and spring semesters through a joint partnership between George Fox and John Brown University, and is based at John Brown's Lakeside Manor campus, in Belfast, Northern Ireland.

  

 

We currently have over 500 George Fox Alumni working in over 50 countries.

There are also scholarships available:

Gilman International Scholarship Program - The Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship Program offers grants for U.S. citizen undergraduate students of limited financial means to pursue academic studies or credit-bearing, career-oriented internships abroad.

Veritas/ISA Diversity Scholarship   - ISA/Veritas offers this scholarship with $14,000 in awards annually to be used toward ISA/Veritas programs. The ISA/Veritas Diversity Scholarships aim to encourage students of a broader cultural make-up to participate in ISA/Veritas programs by offering funds to assist with the expenses of studying abroad.

Oxford Scholars Semester now has up to 25 awards of £2,000 ($2,700) each for students toward study at Oxford. The awards will be given to students who are research assistants to faculty members chosen to participate in the new  Bridging the Two Cultures of Science and the Humanities program.  Click here for more information.

George Fox Student Selected to serve as an Interfaith Ambassador

thomascolinColin Thomas recently completed the Middle East Studies Program (MESP) in Amman, Jordan in the fall of 2021.  In January 2022 he was selected to serve as an Interfaith Ambassador on the George Fox campus for the spring of 2022 as a part of a recent grant between the CCCU and Interfaith Youth Core (IFYC) (funded by the Arthur Vining Davis Foundation and the Pew Charitable Trust) entitled Building Bridges, Deepening Faith:  Interfaith Leadership on Christian Campuses. In his role as an IFYC ambassador, Colin will be asked to connect with others to offer programs and resources on our campus to help fellow students learn and experience the importance of inter-faith engagement that leads to bridge-building activities in our communities. These activities and events should equip and empower fellow students to build a resilient faith, and to better understand their own beliefs by engaging with the beliefs of others.
