Students are invited to propose new experiences to meet the Global Awareness requirement. Students should submit the proposal form to the Odyssey Office after it has been endorsed by the faculty sponsor. New proposals are reviewed throughout the academic year. Proposals requesting funding are considered April 15 for fall projects, October 15 for spring projects, and February 15 for summer projects.
Your proposal should explain how the experience meets the following criteria.
Does the experience you propose involve at least one-to-two weeks of physical immersion in a culture or environment other than your own? (For example, are you are traveling to a different country? Are you exploring an environment that is substantially different from your own?)
Does the experience you propose promote growth in your understanding of the target culture or environment by incorporating a substantial reflective element? (Examples and suggestions of how to fulfill the reflective component of this requirement can be found by visiting the Odyssey Office. Also, click here for suggestions about keeping a journal.)
