Journey Grants offer endless opportunities for education-enriching experiences. Here are a few opportunities for language majors. Consult with your faculty advisor for more suggestions. Visit the Jewell Journey Grants page to complete an online application.
- Undertake a summer or semester language and culture immersion experience through an approved study abroad program.
- Develop speaking skills and partake in the culture of a country that speaks the language you are learning through a residential experience, perhaps choosing to live with a host family.
- Travel and get to know the people and places of your language, enhanced by classroom experiences taught by specialists who are native speakers.
These programs can enhance your learning experience at Jewell by offering a variety of subjects to study. Some study abroad programs have internship opportunities in which students work in a place of business or a government office which helps communication skills, provides a chance to make personal relationships with native speakers and gives valuable work experience. Others offer service opportunities in which you may interact with native speakers in the local community, such as helping in an environmental, educational or medical effort.
