HECUA – Race in America

 HECUA is able to offer eleven ($1000) scholarships for our Race in America students specifically. Eight of the eleven will be set aside for Racial Justice Scholarships and three will be offered as Social Justice Scholarships. These scholarship applications will also be due April 15th, same day as the program application deadline.
Racial Justice Eligibility:
  • Applicant must be student of color.
  • Applicant must be currently enrolled in one of HECUA’s member colleges/universities.
  • Applicant must have a completed program application on file

Race in America: Then and Now is a 4 credit program that takes place during the month of June (21 day program). Students explore questions of racial justice in America today, and the continuing role of race in the United States. Students gain this perspective by meeting with both civil rights activists who were active in the 1960s and those who are active now, as well as lawyers, politicians, educators and youth. Field experiences open up connections among issues related to education, incarceration, distribution of wealth, health care, housing, employment, and the environment. By the end of the month, students have a profound understanding of the Civil Rights Movement and its motivations, strategies, successes and failures. They have also developed ways to make meaningful contributions to their own communities.
The program is based in Jackson, Mississippi, and is offered in collaboration with the Fannie Lou Hamer National Institute on Citizenship and Democracy at COFO on the campus of Jackson State University, one of America’s Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). From Jackson, students travel throughout Louisiana (New Orleans, Wallace), Alabama (including Selma, Montgomery, Birmingham), Tennessee (Memphis, Nashville), visiting historical sites and meeting with many important figures along the way. The total program cost for summer 2018 is $3,600.

Do something different next year through the National Student Exchange (NSE)!

Inline image 1Inline image 2Inline image 3

NSE allows you to study at another school in the United States, Canada, Guam, Puerto Rico, or the US Virgin Islands for a summer, semester, or year! Most students pay U of M tuition, receive financial aid, and earn credits towards their degree! And international students are welcome to participate!

Sign up for an Info Session.

WHERE CAN YOU GO?
There are nearly 170 schools to choose from. You can study at schools from HAWAII to MAINE, from FLORIDA to ALASKA, and nearly every state in between. And don’t forget the United States’ territories of Guam, Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands as well as several schools in Canada!

WHY CONSIDER National Student Exchange?

  • Broaden your personal and educational perspectives.
  • Take courses not available at the U of M.
  • NSE is very affordable! Most students continue to pay U of M tuition and receive their financial aid while on exchange. In some cases, you’ll pay in-state tuition to your host campus.
  • Easily transfer the credits you earn on exchange back to the U of M.
  • Be immersed in another language, such as a French-speaking school in Quebec or a Spanish-speaking school in Puerto Rico.
  • Study at an HBCU (Historically Black College or University).
  • Have an adventure!

HOW DO YOU SIGN UP?
FEBRUARY 21st, 2018 is the priority application deadline for the summer 2018, fall 2018, AND spring 2019.  LET ME KNOW IF YOU NEED A DEADLINE EXTENSION.

  1. Visit the U of M’s NSE website.
  2. Find a Campus at NSE.org.
  3. Talk with your parents and adviser(s) about this exciting opportunity.
