6798 0 Updated Davidson Study Abroad Funding Policy (3/26/2021) Davidson's funding policy related to international travel: Davidson College observes the U.S. Department of State’s assessment of risk to travelers in determining approval for study abroad programs and travel funding. Travel to countries with U.S. Department of State level 4 advisory is not permitted. The college’s International Education Committee approves individual education abroad programs. As part of that approval process, the Office of Education Abroad and the committee will review each program’s COVID safety protocols as well as U.S. Department of State advisories by June 15 (for fall semester programs) and by November 1 (for winter and spring semester programs). Additionally, the committee may suspend approval of programs if members believe that a program is unable to support students adequately given ongoing risk factors. 0 6843 0 Apply Now for Passport!
