Hassenfeld Fellow Overseas Immersion Program Information

Hassenfeld Fellows on a trip to Cuba

The Hassenfeld Fellow Overseas Immersion Program gives you the chance to take part in an introduction to the business and economy of a dynamic overseas market, combining both in-class and travel experience. Past trips have gone to Turkey and Cuba. This year, selected students embarked on one of two trips: Israel, or Panama and Colombia. 

Key Highlights:

  • Structure: The program consists of a module course and travel to the country being studied. The module is taught in the second half of the spring semester. The travel portion of the program beings the week following Commencement in May and lasts approximately 10 days. It is open to first-year students only (as second-year students will have already graduated by the end of May). 
  • Credit: Participants will receive 2 academic credits.
  • Expense: The majority of expenses, including airfare, ground transportation, lodging and breakfasts, will be covered by a generous donation from the Hassenfeld Foundation. The cost to the student will be $500, plus some incidental costs during travel such as visa fees, and some lunches and dinners.

How to Apply

Because of the high level of interest in the program, an application process is needed so that every student has the same chance of being accepted.
