The Outcomes-Based Diversity Outreach Strategy
What is TODOS?
While the definition of under represented students is broad, TODOS is focused on results/outcomes of diversity and inclusion measures put in place to remove the barriers keeping students and educational institutions of varied diverse economic, educational, ethnic and social backgrounds from studying abroad in Barcelona, Spain.
TODOS is based on four pillars:
1. Providing Financial Resources
2. Inclusive Academic & Cultural Programming
3. Targeted Outreach
4. Intercultural Training
In support of the first pillar of TODOS, Providing Financial Resources, we are created three scholarships:
–The TODOS Need-Based Scholarship aims to assist diverse individuals in removing some financial barriers when pursuing programs abroad.
-The TODOS MSI (Minority Serving Institution) Scholarship is open to all MSI’s including students attending Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) and Hispanic Serving Institutions (HSIs).
-The TODOS Summer Ambassador Scholarship provides a full scholarship to the Barcelona School for International Studies (SIS) program each summer. This scholarship includes full tuition for 3 credits + accommodation for a Barcelona SIS summer student. Some restrictions apply.
