Global studies travel Grants
Driven in part by technological developments and by demographic, economic, and ecological shifts, ongoing changes in domestic and international affairs place a higher premium on global literacies and competencies. To succeed educationally and professionally in an increasingly dynamic and interconnected global arena, young people need a broader array of skills and perspectives than in the past -- they need to know about the world and how it works, they need to appreciate cultural similarities and differences, and they need to be able to interact effectively with diverse populations, especially in collaborative problem-solving projects.
To promote such preparedness and teaching and learning about the world, St. Andrew’s is pleased to provide two sets of Global Studies Travel Grants, including funds for student travel through the Guillot Global Fellows Program. Awarded annually through a competitive process, these grants (for up to $2,000 each) are designed to encourage St. Andrew’s students and faculty to have and share formative international experiences and to help create a critical mass of global awareness and engagement in our community.
To apply for these grants, interested students and faculty will need to submit a grant proposal and supporting materials in accordance with the instructions provided. These proposals will be reviewed by a Grants Committee, comprised of faculty, administrators, alumni, and members of the Global Studies Advisory Panel. The Grants Committee will consider a wide-array of factors -- including the objectives of the proposed trip, its relation to St. Andrew’s curriculum and programs, and the proposer’s capacity to make a positive impact while abroad and to share the experience widely upon return.
