Student Scholarship Funds
The Global Awareness Society International encourages participation by both undergraduate and graduate students in annual conference events. We try to provide an encouraging environment for young scholars to present results on a variety of topics related to the effects of globalization. Topics of past presentations have included global social work projects, development projects in third world countries, the need for global education in American schools, and the experiences of foreign exchange students in universities in America and abroad.
The Society maintains three distinct scholarship funds to help support undergraduate and graduate student research and participation in annual congference activities. They are:
- The Global Awatreness Society International general scholaship fund.
- The Dr. and Mrs. Chang Shub Roh Global Awareness Scholarship Fund( administered by the Bloomsburg University Foundation)
- The Leland Stanford McKeeman Scholarship
- Long-time Global Awareness Society Board of Consultants member, Leland Stanford McKeeman, passed away on September 7, 2006. Stan McKeeman, originally from Fort Wayne, Indiana, was a life-long friend of GASI founder, Chang Shub Roh. Mr. McKeeman and Dr. Roh served together in the Korean War and remained close friends. When Dr. Roh came to the States to study social work and sociology at LSU, Stan McKeeman and his family welcomed him and helped him adjust to the new country. Stan McKeeman’s sisters, and other friends and family members have helped GASI establish the Leland Stanford McKeeman Scholarship Fund which is aimed at encouraging student participation in GASI activities by providing travel grants to highly qualified students participating in the Annual International Conference. The scholarship fund is currently endowed with $20,000 with annual interest going to support student activities
