Rowe Scholars Opportunities Abroad Funding

  • Julie Taing on a MedLife trip

A Rowe Scholar may submit a Rowe Scholars Funding Request Form to apply for funding to support travel for an experience he/she finds beneficial to his/her goals of entering the health professions. Applications for funding need to be tightly aligned with a student’s professional goals, and the opportunity for which he/she is applying must be the most efficient and effective way for him/her to attain his/her goal. Students are advised to work with the Experiential Global Learning Office in their planning. No service learning or research component is required for trips to be eligible for funding.
