A&S Winter Travel Grants for International Studies Students

IS Travel Grant Workshop: Budgeting and Application

Are you an International Studies Major? Would you like to travel this winter break?

The College of Arts & Sciences offers awards for international travel. These awards are for independent travel abroad to specified cities and sites, not for formal programs through Education Abroad. The Winter Travel Break 2018 program offers International Studies Majors up to $1700 to travel to London, Paris and Berlin. Students must have earned 30+ credit hours in the major and have at least a 3.0 to apply. Applications are due September 28, 2018 by 4:00pm in room 251 Patterson Office Tower. Applications must include both a budget and an itinerary for their trip.

To help students apply for the program, the International Studies Major will be hosting a Budgeting and Application Workshop on Wednesday, September 12th, from 4:30-6:00pm in Patterson Office Tower, Room 1455. Enjoy some refreshments while getting to know the new Director of International Studies, Dr. Emily Beaulieu, and working on your application.

We look forward to meeting you all!

Why 2+2 Programs? * Students receive the advantages of studying abroad without any loss of time or the risk of credits not being counted. * 2+2 programs allow qualified students to transfer to University of Kentucky’s campus in their third year, thereby saving the cost of a U.S. undergraduate degree. * Students with a desire to study in another country, understand another culture, and interact with professors and students working in a different policy and problem context see many advantages of a collaborative program over an exchange or semester-abroad experience. * It allows for students to benefit from a program that draws on the teaching, curricular, and research expertise of two institutions located in two countries. * The opportunity to be part of a program that offers an undergraduate degree in a different country enhances employability prospects and career path. * Multinational companies are interested in hiring multilingual students who have studied in both countries and understand the similarities and differences in the regulatory and cultural contexts.

The Evolving Definitions of Femicide: Cristina Alcalde

Earlier this year, the Catholic University of Peru selected Associate Professor Cristina Alcalde of the Department of Gender & Women's Studies to be one of six international visiting professors and scholars.
 
Alcalde spent her time at the university teaching a graduate seminar on femicide and violence against women. This opportunity to travel and teach abroad allowed Alcalde to investigate new areas of research and explore international experiences separate from those in America. 
 
In this podcast, Alcalde discusses her trip, issues and research around femicide, and how American understandings of femicide contrast with those internationally.
