A few things to know before applying: our flagship program serves students around the country and runs for 8-10 weeks from June to August. Beyond a full scholarship towards international travel, the program offers students an innovative pre-departure and re-entry curriculum that employs open-source educational technology and communication tools. The goal of the program is to help Wandering Scholars develop intercultural-communication skills, leverage social media for global exposure, and produce digital documentation projects to share with their home and virtual communities.

“No matter how many pictures we could have taken, no matter how high the resolution, no camera could have accurately captured the breathtaking, luminous elegance of the beach sunset. This journey has stripped me of my predictable, surface humanitarian tendencies and aroused my inner global citizen. Now…how’s THAT for culture shock?”— Precious Ekeanyanwu, Costa Rica
