ASU offers an annual scholarship of $3,000.00 for an undergraduate student to spend several weeks traveling in Laos, ordinarily (but not necessarily) over the summer. The recipient must be a full-time undergraduate student during the Spring Semester 2014.

Recipients of the Sage Scholarship are expected to spend at least three weeks in Laos but are free to travel elsewhere in Southeast Asia during their trip. After returning home, they will make an informal presentation about what they have seen and learned and submit a final project report.

To date, eight ASU undergraduates have traveled to Laos as Sage Scholars.

If you are interested in this opportunity this year, please see the application attached with this message. You will need to submit the application materials no later than Friday March 7, 2014 to the front desk of the School of Historical, Philosophical, and Religious Studies (4595 Coor, attention James Rush), or by mail to this address with a postmark no later than March 7, 2014:
