Program Description:
Emory students who are planning to participate on the Italian Studies summer study abroad program in Italy are eligible to apply for the Davidson Medicine and Compassion Scholar Award which can be used to supplement the costs of their program.  The objective of these awards is to empower the recipients to give back to Southern communities in need.

Eligibility: Students must have a 3.0 GPA, be U.S. Citizens, and have submitted a complete application for the Italian Studies summer study abroad program.

Students must also intend to take the Medicine and Compassion course on the Italian Studies program.

Selection: The selection process will be competitively based upon a combination of financial need and academic merit.  In addition, preference for the awards will be given to students who grew up in a Southern state, who are closely linked to their local communities, and who have interest in returning to serve in these communities.  Preference will be given to students who have interest in an international cultural immersion, but who have had limited opportunity to travel abroad and explore other cultures due to financial constraints.

1. Apply online to your program via the on-line application system. Click on the Apply Now link. Emory students will need their Emory login ID and password.
