Christian A. Johnson Endeavor Grant for International Student Collaboration
A grant from the Christian A. Johnson Endeavor Foundation in support of W&L’s strategic initiative in global learning will provide support for international student collaboration.
The program will support four pairs of W&L students for each of four years (2015, 2016, 2017, 2018), one international, preferably from the developing part of the world, and one U.S., to develop and realize a summer project in the home country of the international student. The purpose of the program is to increase the impact of our international students on campus, provide them with an opportunity to give back to their countries of origin, and introduce American students to understudied areas of the world through an immersion experience. Typically, a project will last a minimum of four-weeks and will engage the American student in the community of the host international student. Projects can be research-oriented, involve community service, internships – anything that will allow the American student to gain a better understanding of the host country and the international student to help educate about the culture and people of his/her country.
