Global Perspectives for Humanities Explorations Fund

Deadline November 15

The Global Perspectives for Humanities Explorations Fund provides $1500 for study abroad in Spring or Summer of 2020.

The fund was established at the University of Maine Foundation in 2018 for the benefit of the University of Maine, Orono, Maine with a gift from Tracey Graffam-Dickson ’93 a member of the Friends of the New England Universities of Salzburg – Study Abroad Program established in 1979 at UMaine by Dr. Josef Roggenbauer, Professor Emeritus of German, Department of Modern Languages and Classics.  Tracey found the Salzburg experience to be life changing. In creating this fund, she wanted to highlight the importance of modern language, cultural exploration and the global exchange of ideas, innovation and experiences.  She believes that the experience of living in a different country and learning its culture help one transcend ideological boundaries and inform who we become as citizens of the world.
