Fifteen students were awarded Travel Enrichment Grants and Travel Research Grants by the Center for International and Intercultural Studies (CIIS) in the Fall 2010 semester. Funding is available through CIIS to support St. Lawrence students who want to supplement their off-campus study experience in some way or obtain funding for travel in connection with independent study and research. The purpose of both types of grants is to enhance immersion in a different culture and extend international or intercultural awareness.

Students awarded grant funding are listed below, along with the named endowment fund that supports each grant.

Travel Enrichment Grants are intended for students participating in SLU off-campus programs who are connecting an academic or personal/extra-curricular interest with study abroad or with intercultural experience within the U.S.  Enrichment grants awarded in the fall of 2010:
