DOES DEAN RUSK PROVIDE FINANCIAL SUPPORT FOR STUDY ABROAD THROUGH ITS TRAVEL GRANTS?
Dean Rusk travel grants only support summer study abroad. The program does not make grants to support study abroad during the academic year. If you apply for a grant to support summer study abroad, please remember that grant amounts vary considerably and they tend to range from $1,000.00 - $3,000.00. Independent projects have a higher priority and generally receive more funding than group excursions. Davidson-sponsored summer programs will receive higher priority than third party provider study abroad programs.
The fact that the Dean Rusk Program has made grants to support participation in a specific program in the past does not guarantee that the program will be able to do so in the future. Budgetary conditions and demand for grant support varies from year to year.
