Travel Opportunities

We want you to go away! All students who choose to study abroad have the option of using that experience as their Honors tutorial. For more information, check out the Tutorial Alternative.

The Honors College also offers opportunities for students to travel, either fully or partially funded, both in the United States and abroad. Those opportunities are:

  • National Collegiate Honors Council (NCHC) Annual Conference
    Each year, the Honors College brings twenty or so students to this event.  Students participate in the academic discourse of the conference while exploring an interesting U.S. city.   Past conferences have been held in Chicago, Denver, San Antonio, Philadelphia, Atlanta, St. Louis, Salt Lake City,  Washington, D.C., Kansas City, Phoenix, New Orleans, and Seattle!
  • Bill and Betsy Pullen Leitch ’55 Conference and Study Abroad Fund
    The Honors College can help students with grants of up to $500 for travel to disciplinary conferences to present on their research and help with funding for study abroad. These awards are made possible by a generous donation from Bill Leitch in honor of his late wife, Betsy Pullen Leitch ’55. (Deceased)
