Bliss-Karns-Schwemmlein Scholarship for Study Abroad
Jane P. Carpenter Endowed Scholarship for International Study in France
Nyce Scholarship for Study in Latin America
Philbrook W. Smith History Scholarship

Established by friends and family, this endowment honors Dr. Philbrook W. Smith, a long time professor of history at Juniata College.  Dr. Smith taught at Juniata from 1955 until his retirement in 1998.  He was the Charles A. Dana Professor of History and the chairperson of the history department for many years.  Dr. Smith and his wife, Mary Ann (Bailey) Smith '55 spent much of their spare time traveling.  Dr. Smith believed that the experience of travel in other countries in itself IS study; therefore, this endowment will be awarded to a student traveling abroad to provide assistance with the cost of travel.  Preference shall be given to students with a POE in history.  Selection shall be made by the Provost in consultation with the History Department.

To apply for this scholarship, submit an essay addressing the philosophy of this scholarship, where you are applying to and why you are interested in going to the particular program abroad specifically as it applies to your major and why you deserve this scholarship. Deadline is  February 15 , 2014.
