The Caterpillar Foundation selected Valparaiso University as a partner in their efforts to support the 100,000 Strong Initiative and to increase the number of U.S. students to study abroad in China. Valparaiso University will award nine $5,000 scholarships, on behalf of the Caterpillar Foundation, to business, engineering and computer science students studying abroad at the Valpo Study Center located in Hangzhou, China during the fall 2014 term.

All students selected for the scholarship will be considered for Caterpillar Talent Acquisition.
Award Amount: $5,000 (Nine awards are available) to assist students with travel and living expenses they will incur while studying abroad. Students will receive a check to cover meals and transportation/airfare.
