Sciences Po-Columbia Dual BA Scholarship
The Dual BA Program is an intensive, transatlantic course of study from which undergraduate students earn a Bachelor of Arts from both Columbia University and Sciences Po University. Students begin their studies at one of three Sciences Po campuses in Le Havre, Menton, or Reims, and after two years, they matriculate at Columbia University School of General Studies in New York City. While enrolled, students undertake an interdisciplinary liberal arts curriculum, completing degree requirements for both Sciences Po and Columbia University.
The program combines academic rigor (in two distinctly different environments) with cultural immersion in order to give students the tools to understand the nuances and complexities of tomorrow’s highly globalized and diverse world. Admission to the dual degree program is very selective.
11 students have benefited from Dual BA scholarships funded by the US Sciences Po Foundation.
Since 2012, the US Sciences Po Foundation has benefited from the generosity of the American Society of the French Legion of Honor. Tetyana Hollandsworth, the recipient of the 2012 award, thanks to the American Society of the French Legion of Honor, began her studies at the Sciences Po Reims campus and has since continued her studies at Columbia University as part of the Dual BA Program.
The three 2014 recipients have taken well to the rigors of Sciences Po and to unique opportunities at their respective Sciences Po campuses. Thanks to the American Society of the French Legion of Honor, these students have been able to pursue their studies at Sciences Po without financial worry.
International Student/Emile Boutmy Scholarship
International student scholarships were created to attract the brightest international students (those outside the European Union) to Sciences Po. The US Sciences Po Foundation awards those scholarships to both undergraduate and graduate American students completing their studies at Sciences Po.
Participating in a dual master program in Journalism and Human Rights, Nellie Peyton, a 2014 scholarship recipient, is excelling at Sciences Po. Nellie has gained a unique global perspective while studying in Paris and wrote:
"At the journalism school, I have learned how to do TV, radio, and multimedia reporting while practicing my writing with some of the most experienced professionals in the field…Being in France has given me an entirely new perspective on these topics and incredible access to stories that I would not have had back home."
7 students have benefited from this program as of 2014.
These grants are awarded to Sciences Po students for the purpose of studying in the U.S., during their third year abroad.
10 mobility grants of $6,000 were awarded to students pursuing their studies (year 2012/2013) in Columbia University, Washington-Seattle, Boston College, Georgetown, New York University, University of California and University of Southern California.
A special case was student Gaëtan M. , who received $20,000 in mobility aid in order to help him finance his studies in Columbia University under the double BA program between this university and Sciences Po.
