Downs Family Travel Scholarship
This Downs Family Travel Scholarship was established by Mrs. Eva M. Downs, whose late husband, Jacques M. Downs, was a much-loved history professor at UNE. The Downs family are champions of global education and UNE’s campus in Morocco. The scholarship was established to provide support for students who might not otherwise be able or inclined to participate in a semester abroad. Students planning to study abroad at the UNE Tangier Campus or on other UNE semester-abroad programs may apply.
