SJSU Salzburg Scholars Application
San José State University is inviting applications from full-time students to serve as SJSU Salzburg Scholars during 2013-2014. This is a significant campus-wide opportunity for outstanding colleagues to broaden their understanding of critical global issues and help globalize SJSU through participation in our nationally-recognized SJSU Salzburg Program, which was named a "Top 10 Program on Global Citizen Diplomacy" in American higher education by the US Center for Global Citizen Diplomacy and the US Department of State in 2010.
Following orientation activities during the Spring 2013 semester, the new Scholars will attend an intensive week-long session of the International Study Program on Global Citizenship at the world-renowned Salzburg Global Seminar next summer (May 25-June 1, 2013). The session will be held at the Seminar's historic palace of Schloß Leopoldskron in Salzburg (Austria), the home of Mozart and a UN World Heritage Site located in the heart of Europe at the foot of the Alps. They will spend the subsequent year working with SJSU Salzburg Fellows (faculty, staff, and administrators) on a variety of collaborative projects to promote global citizenship, enhance the greater good of the University as a whole, and build a better world.
We expect to select 10-15 new Scholars this year. Different administrative units on campus, as well as external sources of funding, are providing scholarships to cover program costs and related travel expenses to attend the session in Salzburg. Scholars are responsible for obtaining valid passports and, if required, visas appropriate to their particular circumstances. They must also commit to serving as Scholars for an 18-month period from Spring 2013-Spring 2014, including completion of a course on Global Citizenship during the Spring 2013 semester and a practicum on Global Projects in Spring 2014.
If you are interested in this opportunity, please submit the application below. Completing your application online is easy, reliable, and completely secure. Only materials submitted online will be accepted and it will help to prepare the required documents in advance so they can be easily entered and uploaded. Applications will be reviewed by a Selection Committee composed of current SJSU Salzburg Fellows and SJSU Salzburg Scholars from across campus, which will announce its decisions by the end of the Fall 2012 semester.
Prospective applicants are encouraged to attend Information Session #1 (10/9/12 - CL 412) or Information Session #2 (10/10/12 - MLK 255/257) before submitting an application.
