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. This program provides awards for international opportunities during the upcoming winter intersession and the 2015 spring semester. Funding for summer and fall opportunities is not currently available through this program.
Scholarship amounts vary, but typically range from $1000-$1650, with most awards at the $1000 level. 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.
SIROCS is the successor program to STOCS; current eligibility rules and application procedures apply.
