Hope you have enjoyed some well-deserved rest during the holidays and spent it with near and dear friends or family.
I wanted to remind you that the application for the SASSE Scholarship 22/23 closes 16:00 on the 31st of January (Monday). Information on how to apply can be found attached to this post.
In addition to the attached information, I would like to remind you to include:
Your phone number
Start and finish for all your SASSE engagements (i.e. March 2020 to February 2021)
Name, phone number, and email to your reference for larger SASSE projects (i.e. to your Project leader or Committee president at the time)
Furthermore, I would like to clarify that the scholarship is handed out by the Jubilee Foundation and that the evaluation and recommendation of who should receive the scholarship is made by an unbiased group - the Selection Committee - constituted by SASSE alumni. When the Selection Committee evaluates your personal letter, a large focus is put on new initiatives that you as a SASSE member planned for and executed. The SASSE Board will check the engagements to confirm that you have had the said SASSE positions, but they are not the ones deciding who receives the scholarship.
With that said, this is a great opportunity! The scholarship covers expenses up to 85 000 SEK for summer studies at Harvard or Stanford. So make sure to apply!
