The Student Government (SGA) International Study Abroad Awards were created to encourage UNO students to study abroad on UNO’s various international programs offered via the Division of International Education (DoIE), and to recognize UNO students who contribute to the University campus community.

All full-time UNO students may apply for the awards, except for current officers and/or employees of the UNO Student Government. The Awards are designed for UNO’s Division of International Education (DoIE) Programs that take place in the spring semester or academic year study abroad programs; a separate form is available for those who are interested in the summer study abroad program awards. These presently include UNO Programs in Austria, Brazil, Czech Republic, England, France, Germany, Ireland, Japan, Netherlands, Spain, and Turkey. Students currently studying abroad this semester are still eligible to apply. Any programs developed and administered by UNO’s DoIE office not listed here are also included. Students may only apply these funds towards programs administered by UNO. All recipients will be selected by the UNOSGA International Study Abroad Awards Board.

No student may be awarded more than one of the Student Government (SGA) International Student Awards in a given 365 day period. If any category of award is not filled, the Board may award money to more than one student in any category as it sees fit.
