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)
  • Rezendes Global Service Scholarship
    Honors College Students who wish to make a difference, both locally and globally.  These scholarships enable a student to take part in a service opportunity far from America’s shores.  Past recipients have traveled to Ireland, Ghana, Peru, and Tanzania.

The Rezendes have graciously created an opportunity for students to travel to Boulder, CO for the Conference on World Affairs.

Students have the opportunity to take a June course at Tembusu College as part of the Honors College’s exchange with the college. Students will have part of their tuition covered and a travel stipend and should except the net cost of the trip to be $1,000-$1,500. The Honors College has three spaces for 2018.
