Program Description:
The Yackel Endowed Scholarship was established out of the Donor's commitment to social justice and reverse mission work, and mission to educate people for service to the world.  This scholarship fund provides encouragement and financial assistance to a student of any class who demonstrates financial need and who is involved in a Center for Global Education & Experience short-term program, or summer program, or semester academic program.  This scholarship is open to students attending a college, university, or seminary in the United States or Canada. The award is based upon financial need. 

Award Amount: The award amount is typically between $300-$600.  The amount of the scholarship provided will depend on the applicant’s financial need and the resources available to the Center for Global Education and Experience during any given year.  Final decision regarding the awarding of funds rests with the Center for Global Education & Experience.
