HUNTINGTON INTERNATIONAL FELLOWSHIP

The Huntington National Bank created a generous endowment for Ohio State University students who seek to study foreign language abroad.

PURPOSE:  This program is intended to permit students studying foreign language with interest and supporting work in international business and trade to spend an extended time abroad to enhance their fluency in the foreign language, their knowledge of the foreign culture, and their understanding of the workings and environment of international commerce.
 
ELIGIBILITY:  Students must:
A:  be sophomores or juniors at The Ohio State University at the time of the application;
B:  have completed a minimum of the first two years (six quarters or four semesters) of OSU foreign language study or its equivalent prior to the study abroad experience;
C.  be able to demonstrate serious interest in, commitment to, and involvement in, business, commerce, or industry.
 
APPLICATION:  Application deadline: February 15.  Announcement of awards: no later than  April 15.  Application is available at:  http://flc.osu.edu/undergraduate/scholarships/huntington. Personal interviews of finalists are required.
 
PROGRAM:  Coordination and administration are provided by the OSU Foreign Language Center.  Working with the Center, representatives of The Huntington National Bank,  the appropriate OSU foreign language department, as well as other related areas will be involved in the selection process.  The applicants will identify programs in the target country which provide both linguistic and academic advancement as well as possible work or internship experiences in a business environment.
 
AWARD:  Awards of varying amounts are made, depending on total funds available in the endowment.  The award may be used to cover travel, tuition, and living costs.  Award amounts begin at $500.
