The Wade Francis Travel Grant provides additional funds to summer study abroad students who wish to participate in cultural experiences that enhance their study abroad experience.
Funding of up to $500 may be awarded, but these funds may not be used for travel or living costs that are already part of the student’s program.
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.
How to Apply
Students may apply here by the annual deadline of April 1st, 11:59 pm.
