  • The award will be sent to email address you provide below.
  • Award recipients are required to complete the project according to the terms of the award letter.
  • Amount granted is dependent on the scope and potential impact of the project and normally range from $150 to $500.  However, no minimum or maximum is guaranteed.


You may propose an individual or group project. For a group project, each person will report on his/her participation and individual impact of the effort.  Equal amounts are usually awarded for each member of a group.

We highly recommend that you speak with your professor leading the program about your project since it may also fulfill a course assignment.

While you are encouraged to develop your own project, here are some possible projects to consider:

  • Conduct a session at the Kentucky Statewide Study Abroad Symposium* or professional conference.
  • Create media displays that include subjects from your study abroad program (i.e. art, photo, audio, visual)
  • Publish journal article related to your study abroad program.
  • Conduct and document a project conducted in-country.

Applicants are encouraged to propose a project that has significant meaning to them.

* Statewide Study Abroad Symposium is to be held at Murray State University on Friday, February 1, 2013. This is the second annual symposium following the inaugural event last spring at Western Kentucky University. Stay tuned for registration and proposal details.
