Weissberg Scholars and Fellows
Weissberg Study Abroad Equity Scholarships are awarded to students who have demonstrated active interest in human rights and/or social justice through their studies and extra-curricular activities at Beloit College and in their plans for study abroad. $1,000 stipends help support round-trip travel to the study abroad site and/or other study abroad expenses. Priority is given to students with significant financial need who will study abroad for one or two semesters.
Approximately 15 awards are made each year to students approved to study abroad.
Weissberg Fellowships are awarded to graduating seniors who similarly have demonstrated commitment to understanding and promoting human rights and/or social justice. Each fellow receives an average of $3,000 to undertake post-graduation activities. Approximately five graduating seniors are named Weissberg Fellows each year.
