Cross-Cultural Scholarship Program

The Cross-Cultural Scholarship Program (CCSP) brings WSU international students, WSU faculty, Winona-area teachers and community organizations together to share cultures and ideas.

International students are automatically awarded the Cross-Cultural Scholarship upon admission. To remain eligible for the scholarship, students must complete projects each semester.

We regularly collaborate with the Winona and WSU campus communities for cross-cultural learning. To learn more about the program, please email

Cross-Cultural Scholaship Program Projects

To meet CCSP requirements, each student complete 1 Cultural Sharing project and 1 Cultural Learning project in the fall and spring semesters.

New students are also required to attend New International Student Orientation and WSU Welcome Week and complete the Orientation course (OR100).

No projects are required over the summer or winter break, or during the semester of planned graduation.

Students may submit their own ideas for projects to qualify for the CCSP. Projects must be pre-approved by the International Student & Scholar Services team.

Keep up to date on the approved events and projects on the International Student Resources D2L site.
