CEDAR FALLS -- The Cedar Falls Community Foundation has awarded six $5,000 scholarships from the Robert Eller Study Abroad Endowment to support University of Northern Iowa students with study abroad during the fall 2019 semester.
The study abroad endowment was established by emeritus UNI Education Media Specialist Robert Eller to foster the educational, professional, and personal growth of undergraduate students at UNI by providing funds to support study outside the United States for students whose previous travel and study experiences abroad had been limited.
Applications are accepted through the UNI Study Abroad Center and reviewed by a committee of University of Northern Iowa Emeritus Association members and Cedar Falls Community Foundation executive director Cynthia Sweet.
Six students were chosen to receive scholarships for Fall 2019 from the Robert Eller Study Abroad Endowment.
