Freistat Grant applications due Feb. 7

Applications are available for the Freistat Center Study Abroad Grants for students.

Grants may be used for travel during summer 2022 and the 2022-2023 academic year. The deadline to apply is Feb. 7, 2022.

Student grants cover language study abroad as well as research in a broad range of international study that is consistent with the Freistat Center vision.

Grants support research in peace studies or in any area of inquiry that promotes active conflict resolution.  

Such research may take a theoretical form, involving significant historical, social, economic, or political inquiry; or it may take a more practical form, involving solutions to real-world problems, such as issues involving the health and welfare of a given people or issues pertaining to environmental integrity or sustainable forms of energy.

The application requires a resume, personal statement, program materials (if necessary), an official transcript and two letters of recommendation.


Freistat Grants provide funds for research programs and language immersion programs. Students interested in the summer language programs or any semester program which will contain a significant language study component should consider applying for a Freistat Grant.
