Emilie Strong Smith Travel Grant

Thanks to generous donations to the program, the CIE can offer a limited number of additional funds for visits to cultural or historic sites.

Money from around the world

These funds may not be used for travel or living costs that are part of the academic program in which the student is participating. The amount awarded is variable but generally will not be more than $500. Successful applications will include a clear itinerary of proposed travel with a rationale for visiting the selected sites, a budget, and a statement about other financial resources at the student’s disposal.
