Recognizing the global nature of modern life, the Haslam Scholars Program provides students with the opportunity to travel and study abroad. After their sophomore year, Haslam scholars travel as a cohort to the University of Edinburgh in Scotland where they participate in an engaging and interactive summer course led by University of Edinburgh faculty and centered on intellectual movements and globalization. Scholars also conduct in-depth study on topics related to their own research through their work with academic tutors. In addition, the Scotland Abroad experience provides scholars with the opportunity to travel throughout the country, engage in thoughtful debate about current topics, and produce work that contributes to their senior thesis project.
Many scholars also choose to spend a semester studying abroad on their own. The Office of National Scholarships and Fellowships connects scholars with the resources available for participating in both university-operated and external study abroad programs. Not only can students use their Haslam Scholars Program travel grant to fund their study abroad programs, they also apply for and receive national scholarships and fellowships to facilitate these experiences.
