International Student Domestic Travel Program stipends up to $1200 (the appropriate amount will be determined by the account manager based on the cost of the travel course) will be awarded on the basis of the quality and maturity of the application essay. Each BVU international student seeking a degree is eligible to receive only one of these stipends. Stipends are intended for domestic travel only. Stipends are for students without significant travel experience within the US and who have demonstrated financial need. Each recipient will be expected to write a thank you note to the donor who makes this travel stipend possible.

In a 500 word essay, describe why you would like to travel within the US. What do you hope to gain by this experience? What special qualities do you possess that make you an exceptional candidate for this Stipend?

Questions about the International Travel Stipend, as well as completed applications, should be submitted to Dr. Dixee Bartholomew-Feis in 200-A SSA  or Campus Box 2929.
