Notre Dame International (NDI) has secured funding that will provide financial support to Notre Dame students studying abroad during the summer 2023 semester.
ExpaNDIng Global Access will provide opportunities for Notre Dame students to participate in enriching faculty-led study abroad programs during the summer. The fund is meant to expand access to first generation and high financial need students, and increase participation rates in study abroad programs in Asia, Africa, the Middle East, and Latin America.
“Notre Dame International is pleased to provide new funding opportunities for our students to pursue summer study abroad,” says Michael Pippenger, vice president and associate provost for internationalization.
"By enabling our students to go farther and attend one of the 23 summer study abroad programs that we offer, taught by our outstanding faculty, we know that this will be a transformative experience for our undergraduates. In creating pathways for more of our students to have access and funding for a summer global experience, we are helping to form the next generation of global leaders from Notre Dame.”
Awards of up to $5,500 will be granted toward students’ program fees and the award amount will be determined by the student’s overall financial need, other funding sources, and the quality of the project proposal.
ExpaNDIng Global Access awardees must submit content (including photos, videos, and written reflections) to the study abroad office after their program concludes and must commit to sharing their experience in the program with the Notre Dame campus community during the subsequent fall and spring semesters. Opportunities for outreach may include NDI study abroad-sponsored events during Study Abroad Week, and International Education Week, as well as projects of the student’s own initiative.
