How to Apply for a Travel Study Project

1. Do your homework. The 2018 project listings and fees are online here. For information regarding spaces available, please see the Interim 2018 Travel/Study Project Availability site and the Interim 2018 course schedule. Read the project descriptions, expectations, and tentative itineraries to narrow your interests.

2. Attend the Interim Travel/Study Fair. On Thursday, September 14, 2017 Wofford faculty will be available to discuss travel/study opportunities for January 2018. Flyers for each project will be available in front of Old Main, and from 10:50am - noon, and sponsors offering these projects will hold informational meetings in Main Building. There will be two information sessions offered - one at 11am and one at 11:30 to allow students to attend two different sessions. These meetings are for interested students to learn more about project offerings, not for enrollment or other commitment in any form. You should plan to attend these meetings to learn more about the academic expectations, itinerary and planned activities, selection criteria, due dates for any materials, and costs during these meetings. This is the time to ask any questions you may have.

3. Apply Online. Click here to access the 2018 application listings. To access the application, select your preferred project and click "Apply Now" to begin your online application. You will see a list of required tasks/materials which includes a $1000 non-refundable deposit. This must be submitted to the Office of International Programs (online payments preferred). Those wishing to be considered for early enrollment should submit all items in the checklist by the first round deadline on Thursday, May 4 at midnight. Applications will continue to be accepted for those projects with space available and be considered on a rolling basis until Thursday, September 21, 2017 at midnight

Parents who elect to submit a check should make it out to "Wofford College" and include the student's W number on the "memo" line. Those sending checks by USPS, FedEx, or UPS should send them to the address below; however we encourage online credit card deposit submissions to ensure timely receipt of payment. Please note that deposits must be received by the deadline to be considered for selection. We recommend adding 1-2 days to shipping time to account for internal mail delivery. Note: Deposits are non-refundable for those students who are selected to participate. Those not selected may apply for a second choice project or request that their deposit be returned or destroyed.
