As a result of an initiative by Kunle Oguneye (‘97) and other international alumni, a scholarship fund was started in January 2018 in honor of Dr. Hugh McGuigan, retired Director of International Studies (1983-2008). The first one-time $1000 scholarship will be awarded to an international student in spring 2020, and this scholarship will be awarded yearly to a new recipient for at least the following five years.

Full-time, degree-seeking international students on F-1 or J-1 visas who are sophomores, juniors, seniors, or graduate students and who have completed at least 2 semesters at Valparaiso University are eligible to apply.  The DEADLINE for applying is Wednesday, March 18, 2020.  The Selection Committee will review the written applications and announce the recipient of the scholarship in April.
