Scholarships make all the difference for many students. Please consider giving to the Salzburg scholarship funds and help pass along the wonderful experience of an academic year abroad in Salzburg to a whole new generation of students. On behalf of AYA Salzburg and the Department of World Languages and Cultures, we thank you sincerely for your support.
The Dzidra Shllaku Scholarship Fund was founded in 1998 by former students of Dr. Shllaku to support undergraduate BGSU study abroad students in all majors. Since 1998, more than 75 BGSU students have received a Dzidra Shllaku Scholarship award to study abroad in Salzburg.
The Foell International Travel Award Fund was created by Darrell W. and Sally M. Foell in memory of his mother, Margaret Kaesmann Foell. This fund awards up to $1,500 to students from any university for BGSU’s AYA Austria program and is awarded based on merit.
The Galen and Katja Koepke Study Abroad Scholarship was established by the Koepkes in 2016. This scholarship awards up to $1,500 to BGSU undergraduate and graduate students.
Former BGSU Academic Year Abroad Student Testimonial
“My time in Salzburg was truly life changing, and I couldn’t recommend this study abroad experience highly enough. The beauty of the city and the surrounding region is stunning, and total immersion in the language and culture help you learn faster than would ever be possible in a classroom setting. I’m extremely grateful for the financial assistance of the Shllaku Scholarship Fund, and to the AYA Salzburg program for creating and maintaining such an exceptional program.”
