CUNY undergraduate students planning to participate in programs or independently organized experiences abroad may apply for Scholarships for International Resume-Building Opportunities for CUNY Students (SIROCS). Applicants must demonstrate a clear connection between the proposed program or independently organized experience and her or his career objectives. Most awards will be made for opportunities that take place during the summer and winter intersessions, but the SIROCS Awards Committee will also consider applications for funding of fall and spring opportunities.
Scholarship amounts vary, but will not exceed 80% of program costs. The SIROCS Awards Committee bases its decisions on two criteria: the benefit to the student’s professional goals and financial need. Please consult pre-screened SIROCS Qualified Programs and student and program eligibility criteria for more details.
SIROCS is the successor scholarship program to STOCS (Study/Travel Opportunities for CUNY Students), which has supported over 1,500 CUNY students’ international experiences. Both programs are funded by The New York Community Trust DeWitt Wallace/Youth Travel Enrichment Fund, which has been instrumental to the educational development of CUNY students and to the strengthening of and innovation in global academic program opportunities at CUNY since 1994.
The application deadline is March 17, 2014. Application details are already available and all forms will be posted by February 21, 2014.
SIROCS is the successor program to STOCS; current eligibility rules and application procedures apply.
