Columbia College is offering four new fellowships during the summer of 2015 to give students more opportunities to study or do research abroad.
The Columbia College International Summer Fund, supported by a $150,000 gift from an anonymous donor, will provide 15 College students with funding to participate in Columbia study abroad programs during the summer of 2015. Each award is intended to defray the travel, housing, tuition and overall costs associated with summer study abroad, giving students the opportunity to pursue their intellectual goals, gain valuable international experience and engage with a culture and community beyond New York City.
The Undergraduate Global Policy Fellowship, supported by an anonymous donor and sponsored by the Columbia Global Policy Initiative, will provide $3,000 to $4,000 for rising seniors to conduct policy-oriented research during the summer for a senior thesis that is global in nature. This fellowship, for domestic or international research, was established to assist students researching the problems and challenges that impact the globalized world.
The Beesen Global Experience Research Fellowship, supported by the late Charles F. Beesen LS’58, provides $5,000 for non-native French speakers to study or do research in Paris during the summer. This fellowship was established to give students the opportunity to pursue their intellectual goals, gain valuable research and study experience, learn French and engage with the Parisian community.
The Harvey Krueger Global Experience Fellowship, supported by Harvey M. Krueger CC’51, LAW’53, provides funds for students to pursue research, participate in a study abroad program, or work in a laboratory over the summer in either Israel or Poland. The fellowship was established to give students the opportunity to pursue their intellectual goals and gain valuable international experience. This fellowship is only open to Columbia College students.
