I am writing about a funding opportunity that may be of interest. The Laura W. Bush Traveling Fellowship provides funding for American college students travel abroad. The fellowship helps fund a proposal designed by the applicant to conduct brief work (4 to 6 weeks) in a foreign country related to the mandate of UNESCO – using education, natural sciences, social and human sciences, and culture to build strong ties among nations. Given these flexible guidelines, the fellowship is a great opportunity to work on issues related to girls’ engagement, education, rights, and health.
To learn more about the fellowship and to apply, please visit this page. Applications for travel in the winter/spring are due September 28.
