Delaware Valley University is pleased to announce the first students to receive Generation Study Abroad Scholarships. Six DelVal students were selected to receive $2,500 scholarships funded through a grant provided by the Generation Study Abroad Initiative and the University. The goal of the scholarships is to double the amount of U.S. students who go abroad while providing the opportunity to participate in study abroad programs to a more diverse group of students. These scholarships are awarded to increase the diversity of background, major, career interest and life experiences of the DelVal students who participate in study abroad opportunities.

DelVal students receiving the scholarships are traveling to Belgium, South Africa, Italy, Costa Rica and the U.K. this spring.
