 SAIIE Student Athlete Scholarship

This scholarship is available to UW-Platteville students

It is the goal of the Spanish-American Institute of International Education (SAIIE) UW-Platteville Student Athlete Scholarship to make studying abroad and participating on the SAIIE sports programs more financially attainable for UW-Platteville student athletes.


Eligible students must:
  • must have a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.5.
  • be a full-time degree-seeking UW-Platteville student in the semester preceding and following the education abroad experience.
  • be participating on the SAIIE education abroad program and a SAIIE sports program for at least one semester or one summer session.
  • be an active, competitive student athlete at UW-Platteville in the chosen sport.
  • agree to volunteer at two education abroad events and to serve as an Education Abroad Ambassador for SAIIE one semester following their international experience.
  • give a presentation to their team upon completion of the program.

The SAIIE Education Abroad Scholarship will be awarded on a competitive basis and the selection committee will most strongly consider students who:

  • submit a well written and grammatically correct essay  on how the student believes this experience will develop them personally and professionally.
  • propose creative ways to promote the value of education abroad and the SAIIE sports program to other students upon completion of their program.
