The purpose of this fund is to provide annual awards for students enrolled in the Intensive English Program in the American English Institute (AEI) at the University of Oregon (UO). Thanks to a generous donation on behalf of Janet Hughes Mersereau, the AEI is able to award four two-term competitive scholarships to intensive English students. Scholarships apply to the Intensive English Program (IEP) tuition only. Awardees will be responsible for remaining costs, including the AEI application fee, airfare, visa application costs, UO health insurance, UO mandatory fees, room and board, which are detailed on the AEI website.

The Janet Hughes Mersereau scholarship asks students to serve as ambassadors for the program, speaking with prospective students about their experience in the AEI and at the UO. Scholarships are based on language ability, academic merit (3.0 GPA), and future goals (per a first draft essay).


Students are required to have a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher and must need English language training. This award is for intensive English study only.
