The Organization of American States (OAS) Extends Scholarship and Financial Aid Benefits to Yale University
The Organization of American States (OAS) has extended its scholarship and financial aid benefits, geared towards students from Latin America and the Caribbean who are interested in pursuing master’s and doctoral degrees, to include those attending Yale’s Graduate School of Arts and Sciences.
The OAS provides both scholarships and interest-free educational loans for students. Academic Scholarships are awarded for a maximum of two academic years to provide funds to cover, in whole or in part, tuition and mandatory fees, international travel to and from the place of study, health insurance, living expenses, the purchase of books and other study materials, as well as to complete a dissertation or other work required for graduation — up to a maximum of US$30,000 per academic year. Under the OAS’ Rowe Fund Loan Program, students may obtain interest-free educational loans up to US$15,000 to study or do research. Details on applying for these funds may be found at www.educoas.org.
The OAS is the world’s oldest regional organization, and is the principal political, juridical, and social governmental forum in the hemisphere. It was established to achieve “an order of peace and justice, to promote their [members’] solidarity, to strengthen their collaboration, and to defend their sovereignty, their territorial integrity, and their independence.” Today it comprises the 35 independent states of the Americas.
Yale University is one of the world’s most distinguished centers of learning and research. Founded in 1701, the University has 14 schools and more than 11,000 students. The Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, founded in 1847, is the second largest at Yale, with 2,600 students. It is the nation’s oldest graduate school and was the first to award a Ph.D. degree in the United States. The school is known for its academic excellence, extraordinary resources and world-class faculty. To learn more about the Graduate School, please visit http://www.yale.edu/graduateschool/index.html.
