Application provided here: Mellon Initiative Application
The 2017 Mellon Initiative is a program designed for Bennett College students who are keenly interested in experiencing a fully-funded, short-term international experience. Sponsored by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the goal of this initiative is to form partnerships with foreign institutions for ongoing collaboration with Bennett and to provide cultural and academic exposure for our students so that they move towards becoming global citizens.
Selection for participation was based on factors such as major, classification, GPA, personal essay, and availability, and their likelihood to return to Bennett College in the fall semester. This set of study abroad opportunities allowed for two separate groups of students to travel to either South Korea or South Africa as Bennett College ambassadors.
