Each year the East-West Center Association (EWCA) awards summer travel grants to deserving students to offset the costs of traveling to conferences or field work destinations. These travel grants are funded by generous East-West Center alumni from all over the world. In 2008, 10 EWCA travel grants were awarded – five funded by the EWCA Hawaii Chapter – to travel between May and August.
Currently, the East-West Center’s Alumni blog, EWCA Discussion Board, is featuring its “Travel Grant Series” – a series of nine short narratives of the East-West Center Travel Grant recipients’ experience. To read the series click here.
