We are pleased to welcome everyone to the Fall 2020 semester. Whether you are back to campus in person or joining virtually from a distance, CEAPS is here to be a resource for you.
What’s new this year
We’ve re-designed and launched the new CEAPS website this summer. Please take a look and let us know if you have any feedback. If you are new to CEAPS, the website will be a good place to learn more about our mission, programs, and resources.
All CEAPS events will be presented virtually on Zoom this Fall. (See section below for a preview of our upcoming events.) Registration will be required to minimize potential disruptions during the event sessions. Most talks will be recorded and made available for viewing in the Illinois Media Space, accessible through CEAPS’ website.
CEAPS offices will remain closed to foot traffic and our staff will continue to work remotely until further notice. We are committed to serving the CEAPS community through virtual programming and ongoing grant initiatives in support of EA focused teaching, learning, and outreach. We will continue to bring you regular center updates, community happenings, and internal/external opportunities to help you stay informed and connected. We encourage everyone to reach out to us by email and welcome opportunities to collaborate with faculty, students, and departments.
In lieu of the annual Matsuri Festival, Japan House will be hosting an all-day streaming event called GANBARU! Day of Giving on Sat, Aug. 29 from 9am to 9pm. Performances from past participants will be featured, as well as 5 different tea ceremonies. Watch for LIVE updates on the fundraising efforts, video montages, and more. Participants will be randomly drawn for prizes throughout the day.
Gilman International Scholarship Program Info Session and Writing Workshop
Are you interested in study abroad, but concerned about the cost? The Gilman International Scholarship Program provides awards of $5,000 (plus up to a $3,000 supplement for critical languages) for U.S. citizen undergraduate students to pursue summer, semester, or academic-year study abroad opportunities in other countries. This is a need-based award, and to be eligible, you must be receiving a Federal Pell Grant.
The National and International Scholarships Program will assist in reviewing your scholarship application material. In fact, we welcome the opportunity to help make your application more competitive! To get you started, we are offering a two-day informational event about the Gilman Scholarship. For more information, contact the scholarships office at email@example.com or visit our website.
