Sankofa Birds African Heritage Room 

The Summer Study Abroad scholarships sponsored by the Nationality Rooms Committees reflect decades of work by those committees to honor an ideal--education through cultural exchange.  After their rooms were built, the groups decided to stay together to raise funds enabling eligible University of Pittsburgh students to study abroad, thereby experiencing another culture in depth.  Please watch the movie below to discover the basic information pertaining to eligibility and application.  The undergraduate portion of the video is the first half, and graduate eligibility and application is the latter half.
