The Organization of American States and Alma College are funding scholarships for the citizens and/or permanent residents of any OAS Member State except the United States.
Alma College (the College) offers a personalized education that allows you to create new knowledge through academic research, expand your horizons with global study initiatives, supplement your academic studies with relevant experiential learning opportunities and indulge your artistic and athletic yearnings while completing your degree on time. Your Alma experience will include opportunities to put the ideas and theories that you discuss in the classroom to work in real-world settings through internships, research fellowships, campus leadership, academic travel or service to others.
The Organization of American States is the world’s oldest regional organization, dating back to the First International Conference of American States, held in Washington, D.C., from October 1889 to April 1890. That meeting approved the establishment of the International Union of American Republics, and the stage was set for the weaving of a web of provisions and institutions that came to be known as the inter-American system, the oldest international institutional system.
