Award Overview

The Stanley Undergraduate Award for International Research is given annually to outstanding University of Iowa undergraduates for the pursuit of learning activities in international studies that are not available on the UI campus.

Awards are made to students who have, in close consultation with faculty members, developed well-conceived, small-scale research or fieldwork projects on international topics, which require travel abroad.

Award stipends range from $1,000-$3,000, depending on merit and on travel and living costs associated with the research project.
Results of the competition will be announced by late April 2013. Successful applicants must use and claim the funds by May 2014.
