Komar Shideler Centennial Scholars Study Abroad Scholarship

The Komar Shideler Study Abroad Scholarship was established in 2019 through the generosity of Ross Shideler and Kathleen Komar. Preference will be given to Comparative Literature and Scandinavian Languages majors/minors and Nordic Studies majors. Students in the Humanities, with high financial need who have not studied abroad will be considered next, followed by students participating in the UCLA Summer Travel Study Program: Scandinavian Section: In the footsteps of Hans Christian Andersen (independent of major), with high financial need and no previous study abroad experience. See Eligibility Criteria.

Note: IEO strives to provide scholarship funds broadly to assist the maximum number of applicants. As such, multiple awards per applicant are unlikely.
