2018-2019 Summer Awards

The Curriculum in Global Studies is pleased to announce a call for proposals for monetary awards to support our Undergraduate students who have secured/are securing globally oriented experiences, including internships, study abroad, research, and other similar endeavors for Summer 2019. The aim is to provide financial support so that students can pursue opportunities that will enrich their academic and professional careers. These experiences can be based in the US or abroad.  The average award will be approximately $1,000, depending on the project proposal and availability of funds.

Unfortunately, graduating Global Studies seniors are not eligible for these awards.
