Global Flyers Programs: 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.

INDIA: Agroecology and Food Security Experience in the Himalayas

Nutritional security and sustainability — these are important issues globally and locally. Each summer for six weeks, up to four Honors students will travel to Sikkim, India, the first state in India to legislate 100% adoption of organic food production. Students will participate in an interdisciplinary seminar linking food security with community-based learning and gain first-hand exposure to agricultural systems and food culture through an immersive homestay in eastern Himalaya. Local experts will help students examine how educational, social and economic systems affect nutritional security and sustainability. The Honors Program partners with the School for International Training (SIT) for the summer experience. More information about SIT can be found here. Information about the Agroecology and Food Security program can be found here.

The summer cohort will reflect and build on their experiential learning in India to identify and apply it locally.

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.

LONDON: Internship Experience

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.

OXFORD: Research Experience

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

Applications are by invitation only.
