College of Arts and Sciences invites students to apply for Mattes Foreign Wader Award

Submitted by Malorie Wagner

The College of Arts and Sciences invites students to apply for the Glenda Garrelts Mattes and Donald A. Mattes International Travel Award, also known as the Mattes Foreign Wander Award. The award is intended to provide the financial means to allow a student studying in the College of Arts and Sciences, who might not otherwise consider it, to travel abroad and meaningfully engage a new culture and setting for the first time.

Undergraduates are invited to submit proposals for an independent international travel experience. Travel may be planned for any time period, but the deadline for summer 2019 travel is Feb. 1. Applications received after Feb. 1 will be considered for future awards. One award of $4,000 will be available for 2019. Students who may not otherwise have the financial means to travel abroad are particularly encouraged to apply.

To apply, students should visit the Mattes Foreign Wander Award webpage and complete the application.
