In the spirit of Raoul Wallenberg’s experience at Michigan, the Raoul Wallenberg International Summer Travel Award will allow selected students to take part in a community service project or civic participation anywhere in the world. The fellowship will support such experiences as, for instance, volunteer work with a humanitarian organization such as a school, clinic or aid program, or the exploration of humanitarian issues not well understood in the US.
Several awards will be made annually, each in the amount of up to $2,000 to cover transportation, room and board, and local excursions made in connection with the project. One award will be the Isabel Bagramian Summer Travel Award, given by Linda Bennett and Robert Bagramian in honor of Isabel Bagramian.
Awards will be made to undergraduate students in any of the University’s schools or colleges, and one award will be to a student in any of the University’s graduate or professional programs. The University of Michigan’s International Center receives applications and organizes the selection of awardees. Applications are accepted in January and February.
The application deadline is February 13, 2017 by 11:59 PM.
