Nyfeler Scholarship

Scholarship awarded to students studying abroad at the Steger Center in the Fall 2023 semester.

We want you to consider your academic and cultural experiences and apply them in ways that enhance your Steger Center experience. You will need to exercise your ability to think critically about your global experience.

It is very important that you provide thoughtful, well-written responses, so you should set aside sufficient time to answer the questions below. We will need to hear specifics in your answers (not just general descriptions). There is no set length for your answers.

If awarded a scholarship, upon return, you will need to submit a report of your project demonstrating impact made by these funds. You will also be requested to send a ‘Thank You’ to Mr. Nyfeler with a chance to speak to your time and experience at Riva, in part made possible by this scholarship.

Important Reminder:
Please DO NOT wait until the last moment to submit your application. Scholarship Central locks down at midnight and we can’t manually override the system!
In order for us to be able to score your application, all the materials need to be in the system (we cannot score emailed applications). And we can’t upload anything for you as we don’t have those editing permissions. So, any applications not submitted by midnight cannot be reviewed – NO EXCEPTIONS!
