UN sponsored disarmament scholarship

Do you:
-Have an interest in raising awareness and promoting change for a more peaceful and secure world?
-Desire to work with an office at the United Nations?
-Want to study disarmament in Vienna, Geneva, Hiroshima and Nagasaki?

If you answered “yes” to at least one of those questions, please consider applying to be a United Nations Youth Champion for Disarmament. This June, the UN will provide a fully-funded program for students from around the world to learn about nuclear disarmament, and how those students can spread the message of disarmament in their local communities.

This is a competitive scholarship opportunity and students are required to submit 2 short essay responses and 3 letters of recommendation as part of the application. Students from ALL disciplines and majors are encouraged to apply.

To aid in the application process, the ASPIRE office (Arnold Hall) is coordinating the application. Applications for this opportunity are due on March 18th, 2020. For more information, please email ASPIRE program coordinator, Eric Myers, at Eric.Myers@mail.wvu.
