Program Description:
Purpose of the Fund
The Mary Witt Scholarship Fund was established in 1987 in memory of Mary Witt, who was killed in a car accident several months after participating in a Center for Global Education & Experience (CGEE) customized program to Central America. The Center attached the fund to Mary’s name because of her inspiriting commitment to a more inclusive, just and peaceful world. The money in this small fund enhances opportunities for persons lacking sufficient personal resources, especially persons of color, to participate in Center for Global Education & Experience customized program and meet their counterparts in other countries who are working for social change.
Due to the limited size of the fund of about $4,000/year and the many requests we receive award amounts may range from $500-$2000.  Final decision regarding the awarding of funds rests with the Center for Global Education & Experience.

General Criteria
  1. Should apply by the scholarship deadline PRIOR to the start of your program.
  2. Will be expected to contribute a portion of the total cost of the trip.
  3. Should be able and willing to share their experiences upon return with CGEE in the form of a written summary. We also encourage scholarship recipients to share photographs from the seminar with CGEE. Our expectation is that program participants will share their experiences with their community networks (e.g. university/college campus, faith community, family, etc.).
  4. Only one group application is necessary to apply for the entire group.
