US Student, Student Travel Grant
“I was lucky enough to be given the Gulliot Fellow travel grant to go overseas to Germany. I benefited from this trip by living with another family for 2 weeks, attending school, and participating in cultural and community events. I learned about the politics and history of Germany and made life-long friendships with my host family.”
US Student, Hosting
“I met my Ghanian guest when I went on the Ghana trip with SA the previous May, and I had the wonderful opportunity to host her in October. Hosting her was one of the highlights of my junior year, as she and I became close and learned a lot about each other’s cultures and families. I love having a friend on the other side of the world."
