Vogel International Fellowship


The Vogel International Fellowship was created in 2005 due to the generosity of Moritz College of Law alumnus Mr. Stephen Vogel. These endowed funds are used to encourage Moritz College of Law students to engage in international education opportunities. Each year, several awards of up to $1,000 are granted to need and merit-based applicants participating in one of the Moritz College of Law’s sponsored education abroad programs.

About the Fellowship

The Vogel International Fellowship yearly awards several Moritz students either $1,000 (for long-term programs) or $500 (for short-term programs) to assist in paying for eligible education abroad program expenses, including program costs, housing, airfare, etc.

Applicant Eligibility

Applicants must also apply for one of Moritz College of Law’s semester or short-term education abroad programs. Granting of the fellowship is dependent upon acceptance to and participation in a Moritz education abroad program.
