Mark Twain on STUDY ABROAD:  "Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry and narrowmindedness..."

Southwestern supports the mission of the Builders Abroad program by providing partial financial support to students who wish to expand their horizons by studying off-campus for long-term, cross cultural experiences.

In cases where more than five students apply, financial need will be taken into consideration. This scholarship can be combined with federal and state financial aid to finance an experience abroad.
