SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATION

The application for the UTD-OAS scholarship may be accomplished through two different ways: (1) self placed scholarships and (2) OAS-placed scholarships.

A. Self-Placed: Candidates apply directly for admission to the universities or educational institutions of their choice and apply separately to the OAS for scholarships to assist in financing those studies. Consideration for a scholarship is contingent on receipt of proof of admission to the university by the deadline established by the OAS General Secretariat. The number of self-placed scholarships the OAS will award among all member States is more limited than OAS-placed scholarships, averaging 1 self-placed scholarship per country.
B. OAS-Placed: Candidates do not apply directly for admission to universities or educational institutions. Instead, candidates apply to the OAS only for a scholarship. The OAS seeks admission for those candidates selected for scholarships to recognized and reputable universities or educational institutions determined by the OAS, taking into consideration the preferred countries, language(s), and the intended fields and levels of study stated by the candidates in their applications to the fullest extent practicable. Depending on the individual case, the OAS may negotiate additional resources with these institutions which often results in the scholarship recipient receiving a full scholarship.

 

DEADLINES:

1. APPLICANTS MUST SUBMIT THEIR COMPLETED APPLICATION AND DOCUMENTS TO THE NATIONAL LIAISON OFFICE (ONE) IN THEIR SPONSORING MEMBER STATE: deadline determined by each Member State’s ONE. Applicants must contact their ONE for the deadline.
2. The ONE of each Member State must present to the Department of Human Development of the OAS in Washington D.C. the list of ranked pre-selected candidates they will sponsor by: June 15th, 2009.
3. If not included in the application package, applicants must present language certificates and/or standardized tests results no later than August 14th, 2009.

4. Self-placed applicants who will begin studies between January and April of 2010 must send to OAS Headquarters letters of admission to universities by: October 30th, 2009. All other candidates beginning studies later on in 2010, may submit their letter of admission by July 2nd, 2010.

Incomplete applications and those not received by the stated deadlines will not be considered. Requirements, evaluation criteria, and deadlines will be strictly enforced.
