Davis International Fellows

APPLICATION DEADLINE IS 12:30 PM, FRIDAY, APRIL 4, 2014

The Davis International Fellows Program is designed to help students undertake educationally meaningful international experiences that link to academic or career interests.  Students are invited to submit proposals to fund unpaid, international, non-credit bearing internships, service/volunteer experiences or structured independent research based on their interests and background.  Students can design and initiate their own assignments and contacts, either independently or through established organizations.  Students also may seek suggestions and guidance from faculty and staff.

Independent research involving human subjects must have the approval of the College's Institutional Review Board (IRB). Also, recipients are required to carry international health insurance.  The Filene Center processes this coverage for students (approximately $40/month) and bills students' accounts.

Recipients receive a $5,000 stipend to support experiences of 6-8 weeks during the summer break. The award may be used to cover travel and living expenses as well as any preparatory costs, such as immunizations, passport and visa fees. Proposals for the Davis International Fellows Program are accepted from current sophomores and juniors with at least a 3.0 GPA and who are in good academic and social standing. The Davis International Fellows Program is not need-based and is open to international students who meet all other eligibility criteria.  However, international students are not permitted to return to their home country through this fellowship.  Fellows may not use their stipend to volunteer or intern in countries that are on the U.S. Government Travel Warning List.
