Luz Renteria Gomez will travel to Seoul, South Korea, as a participant in the two-week co-ed Summer College for International Students at Ewha Womans University

What is the timeline?

Travel Fellowship applications may be submitted year-round, but all application materials must be received at least 1 month prior to the dates you will travel, and before you pay for any expenses you want included.

An International or Intensive Travel Fellowship requires more advance planning – to plan your travel, what you will study, and how you will make your learning public. During, or as a result of your travel, you will create a project or a product within the scope of your major or support area (or other academic program/goals). Examples might include: a research project shared with classmates or in a public poster session; a blog addressing a specific aspect of your study/findings; an integrated activity for your travel course classmates; an annotated bibliography of relevant readings; etc.
