Support our Campaign for Study Abroad Scholarships
UC Blue Ash College is working to CHANGE LIVES, and we need YOUR help! Our goal is for even more students to graduate with life-changing experiences by increasing the number of study abroad scholarships issued from the study abroad funds listed below.
All it takes is a donation of $1!
While learning in the classroom is an essential part of higher education, life experiences such as meeting new people in different parts of the world can transform and shape a person for the rest of their life. Students who study abroad often claim they return a completely different person with a newfound respect for diversity and a fresh perspective. Having the opportunity to step (or leap!) out of one’s comfort zone, perhaps for the first time, is priceless. However, many students are only able to study abroad with the help of scholarship funding.
"Receiving this scholarship means that my hard work and studying is paying off, and I will receive an opportunity of a lifetime which I would not have been able to afford on my own. I will be able to learn things to help me with my future career at a zoo. I plan on doing whatever I can to share my experience with those who have helped me gain this experience.”
- Evelyn Sisler, 2016 Christie Study Abroad Scholarship Recipient
"When checking my email, I was elated to find the scholarships I was offered. I was apprehensive to study abroad due to costs, but now am excited and am planning for my trip. I have wanted to do this my entire life, and receiving scholarships makes it so much easier. I'm extremely grateful for what I've been given, and I know I'll put this trip and its experiences to good use!”
- Timothy Steiner, John D. & Marjorie E. Sipple Study Abroad Scholarship Recipient
PAY IT FORWARD by making a gift as small as $1
Making a small gift to any of the following scholarship funds helps a future student share the same type of unforgettable experience as you. Each dollar counts and adds up quickly to make a BIG difference in the life of a UCBA student.
Lee Baker, Jr. Study Abroad Scholarship
The Lee Baker Jr. Study Abroad Scholarship is awarded annually to a student enrolled in any UCBA study abroad program, and was established by family and friends of the late UCBA Professor Lee Baker in his memory to enable students to share in his passion of history and travel.
Christie Study Abroad Scholarship
The Christie Study Abroad Scholarship is awarded annually to two students enrolled in any UCBA study abroad program, and was established by UCBA alumna Mary Anne Christie as a way to allow UC Blue Ash students to experience cultural difference.
Mike Roos Study Abroad Scholarship
The Mike Roos Study Abroad Scholarship will be awarded annually to a student enrolled in any UCBA study abroad program, and was created by Faculty Emeritus Mike Roos to expand study abroad opportunities to disadvantaged students—especially those who may have never traveled outside of the U.S. before.
John D. and Marjorie E. Sipple Study Abroad Scholarship
The John D. and Marjorie E. Sipple Study Abroad Scholarship is awarded to one UCBA student in the Summer British Study Abroad Program, and was established in honor of John D. and Marjorie E.
