Information and Selection Criteria for the Global Engagement Travel Scholarship

** Note: For information regarding currently approved travel, please review the Office of International Affairs Global Safety and Risk information

The global engagement travel scholarships are intended to support student travel (international or domestic) for immersive activities that expand the student’s cultural and technical competencies related global one health (research, education, service, outreach, capacity building, etc.) that supports their future career goals. The number of travel scholarships and their amount vary depending on the applicant pool and funding available for that particular year.

The global engagement travel funds are awarded twice annually (Autumn and Spring semesters).  Students can apply for trips for research, clinical training (externships), study abroad, or service learning. The travel must have both a veterinary and cultural component. This program is not meant to support regular clinical externships or conference travel.  Longer periods of travel that allow for more immersion in a culture/ community are preferred as are projects that include research.  Students should demonstrate that they have sought funding from other sources and have planned their opportunity and on-site mentors well. If you need help in planning an experience, please look at our list of previously funded trips and current opportunities, or contact Dr. Rebecca Garabed ( to set up a meeting.
