Bon­der­man Travel Fel­low­ship 2015
Dead­line:   Jan­u­ary 12, 2015, 12 noon (PST)

Dear Grad­u­ate and Pro­fes­sional Students,

We write to share an extra­or­di­nary oppor­tu­nity for travel, dis­cov­ery, and chal­lenge. The 2015 Bon­der­man Travel Fel­low­ship appli­ca­tion is now avail­able and we encour­age you to con­sider apply­ing. This fel­low­ship offers Uni­ver­sity of Wash­ing­ton graduate/professional and under­grad­u­ate stu­dents (from the Seat­tle, Tacoma, and Both­ell cam­puses) an oppor­tu­nity to engage in inde­pen­dent explo­ration and travel abroad.

David Bon­der­man — the donor — wishes to give stu­dents an oppor­tu­nity to expe­ri­ence learn­ing and growth in new and unex­pected ways. Bon­der­man Fel­lows will under­take inter­na­tional travel on their own for eight months, to six or more coun­tries in two or more major regions of the world. Through solo travel the Fel­lows will focus on explo­ration and dis­cov­ery, learn­ing about the world and them­selves in it.

Up to seven grad­u­ate and seven under­grad­u­ate Bon­der­man Fel­low­ships will be awarded in Spring 2015. Each Fel­low­ship car­ries a $20,000 award to be used only for extended solo inter­na­tional travel. Fel­lows may not con­duct research, pur­sue an aca­d­e­mic project, or par­tic­i­pate in a for­mal pro­gram or organization.

Eli­gi­bil­ity:

All appli­cants must be enrolled (“on leave” sta­tus is not con­sid­ered enrolled) and in good stand­ing at the UW dur­ing the quar­ter the appli­ca­tion is due and must hold US cit­i­zen­ship or per­ma­nent res­i­dent sta­tus. Additionally:

GRADUATE/PROFESSIONAL STUDENTSAll stu­dents in grad­u­ate or pro­fes­sional degree pro­grams are eli­gi­ble to apply.

UNDERGRADUATE STUDENTS: All under­grad­u­ate stu­dents with senior credit stand­ing and a degree appli­ca­tion on fileAND who also meet ONE of the fol­low­ing cri­te­ria are eli­gi­ble to apply:

  • at least a 3.7 cumu­la­tive UW GPA by the start of Win­ter 2015; OR
  • par­tic­i­pa­tion and good stand­ing in the Uni­ver­sity Hon­ors Pro­gram (Inter­dis­ci­pli­nary, Depart­men­tal or Col­lege Hon­ors) or in UW Tacoma’s Global Hon­ors Pro­gram, by the start of Win­ter 2015. Under­grad­u­ates in one of these Hon­ors pro­grams DO NOT need to have 3.7 UW GPA or higher to apply, but sim­ply must be in good stand­ing in their respec­tive pro­grams, what­ever that might mean.

To learn more about this extra­or­di­nary oppor­tu­nity, please attend one of the infor­ma­tion ses­sions listed on the website.

Appli­ca­tions must be sub­mit­ted by 12:00 pm (noon) Jan­u­ary 12, 2015.  Q&A ses­sions for inter­ested appli­cants will be held and announced shortly.
