While almost 300 students per year participate in either a semester or yearlong program abroad, others seek an international research, study or internship experience during the summer or interterm. These opportunities may be an alternative to a full term abroad or they can be an extension of a student’s time abroad to deepen knowledge of another culture or global topic. To ensure that all Smith students have access to opportunities regardless of major, transfer status, life commitments or financial need, grants can provide funding for special projects that are enhanced by a learning experience abroad.
