DREXEL UNIVERSITY SCHOOL OF LAW (PA) EDUCATIONUSA RISING ADVOCATE SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM

We recognize that obtaining a JD in the United States is expensive. Because Drexel Law is committed to attracting a diverse student body, including international students, we have developed the EducationUSA Rising Advocate Scholarship Program. This competitive program, which will provide up to 50% off the cost of law school tuition for all three years, will assure that those highly qualified students who are not U.S. citizens and who wish to pursue a JD in the United States will be able to do so.

Because of the relationship that we have established with EducationUSA, we are reaching out to advisers around the globe to help us identify the first recipients of the EducationUSA Rising Advocate Scholarship, with the goal of having the Scholars begin their studies at Drexel Law in August 2015. Students who are nominated by an EducationUSA adviser and whose application includes a recommendation from that adviser will receive preference in evaluating who will receive an EducationUSA Rising Advocate Scholarship.

Please contact Leslie Friedman (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ) for more information about the program.

SYRACUSE UNIVERSITY (NY) SOCIOLOGY PROFESSOR LOOKS AT THE INTERNATIONAL STUDENT EXPERIENCE

When Associate Professor Yingyi Ma arrived on campus in 2006 to teach, she noticed few international students from China at the undergraduate level. Since then, at SU and other universities, a change has been occurring.

“Many universities, especially public universities, are recruiting more international students from Asia,” Ma says. The number of international students is as high as 10 percent or more of undergraduates at some universities.

Those observations have led to her latest research and a purpose in helping institutions think about the best experience for international students.
