Global Flyers Program: International Summer Opportunities for Honors Students

The University Honors Program supports students in their international endeavors, and is pleased to offer the following three programs to our exceptional students.

Think Globally, Act Locally: Food Security in the 21st Century

Nutritional security — access to a sustainable and reliable supply of fresh and healthy food — is an important issue affecting the developing world and our local community. Each summer up to five Honors students will travel to Sikkim, India, for four weeks. Students will gain first-hand exposure to agricultural systems and food culture through an immersive homestay in eastern Himalaya. They will examine how educational, social and economic systems affect nutritional security and sustainability with local experts. The Honors Program partners with School for International Training (SIT) for the summer experience. More information about SIT can be found here

Building on their experiential learning in India, the summer cohort will design and implement a group project in Dayton addressing nutritional security and sustainability. The group project component in Dayton will be developed in partnership with the Hanley Sustainability Institute and local community partners.

Applications for any upcoming program will be available each fall. Students with proven interest in sustainability, nutritional security and building mutually-beneficial community partnerships are preferred.

NOTE: Students who are members of the Global Flyers cohort are not eligible for additional funding through the Hull fellowships.

Honors London Flyers Program

Today’s economy requires professionals with specific disciplinary skills and experience in a multicultural and global workforce. Up to five Honors students will be selected each year to gain valuable global workplace experience by interning 20 hours per week in London, attending courses and seminars and exploring the UK.

Applications for any upcoming program will be available each fall. 

Information about the Honors Program partner organization, CAPA, can be found here.

NOTE: Students who are members of the Global Flyers cohort are not eligible for additional funding through the Hull fellowships.

Global Scholar Experience at Oxford University

The creation of new knowledge is a process of continuous evaluation of sources and results in the context of the global community of scholars. Oxford University has been at the center of this process for centuries. This program provides our top junior thesis writers with the opportunity to develop their thesis projects in an international research community.

Applications are by invitation only.
