UHCL Internal Scholarships
1. International Education Fee Award Scholarship The International Education Fee Award is a merit-based financial support available
for graduate and undergraduate students wishing to internationalize their education
experience at UHCL. The award is designed to be utilized by students wishing to study
abroad, for international exchange students, or as an emergency fund for students
participating in study abroad or international exchange. Selection for the award is
merit-based, primarily focusing on the merit of the international experience and the
quality of the student’s application. Access information about the application process

2. Amy Linn O’Sullivan Memorial Student Experience Scholarship The Amy Linn O’Sullivan Memorial Student Experience Scholarship is an award for undergraduate
or graduate/professional UHCL students wishing to participate in a study abroad program
recognized by the Office of the Provost and OIAP. Selection for the award is based
on merit, quality of application, and length and location of the program, with special
preference to the Dolphin Study in the Amazon program. Granting of the award is also
contingent upon the completion of a one-hour presentation based on the student’s participation
in the approved education abroad program. Amy Linn O’Sullivan, a 2002 undergraduate
in Behavioral Science and a 2004 graduate receiving an MA in Multicultural Studies,
epitomized a life fully lived with courage and delight, no matter the effort or obstacle.
Unfortunately, her life ended too soon. In her 31 years, she packed passion, intelligence,
curiosity, activism and adventure into her life. All along the way, she learned and
shared with others. To honor her work, her life, and her causes, her family established
the Amy O’Sullivan Memorial Student Experience Fund. Access information about the
application process at the Student Financial Aid website.
