Larson International Fellowship
- Scholarship Description
- Purpose: The Larson International Fellowship was established in 1986 by grants to Carleton from Robert '56, John '60, and David Larson '63 in memory of their parents, Frances W. and Eugene Larson. Both Frances and Eugene had a deep interest in Carleton and were champions of international understanding and involvement. Awarded annually, Larson International Fellowships provide a significant international experience for students with strong leadership potential.
Funding: Up to $3,500 for each fellow chosen.
See website for this year's deadlines.
* Fellowship awards are intended for sophomores and juniors to use during the summer prior to their senior year or winter break of their senior year.
* Students studying any discipline are eligible.
* All applicants must be in good academic standing.
* While prior foreign experience does not disqualify an applicant, special consideration is given to those who have not traveled abroad.
* Only students from the United States and Canada may apply since foreign students, by their very presence at Carleton, have already gained major international exposure.
* Fellowship awards will support programs in all countries of the world except the United States and Canada.
Selection Criteria: Successful Larson International Fellowship all start with a fabulous idea (one that is creative, personally significant, and feasible) which involves travel abroad. Since the primary emphasis of the program is on its international experience rather than its academic aspect, formal study at foreign institutions will not be funded. Field work or research is appropriate, as long as it brings the Fellow into meaningful contract with a culture or society. Special consideration is given to those who demonstrate strong leadership potential. The best Larsons have elements of adventure!
* put students in contact not just with the geography, flora and fauna of a place, but with its people and cultures;
* do not involve formal study at an academic institution; and
* are interesting projects, well designed, and feasible.
