Will You be Spelman's Next Fulbright Fellow?
If you want to study in other countries or at other schools
in the United States, Spelman encourages you to seek out
those opportunities. A big part of a Spelman education is
gaining an appreciation of the multicultural communities
of our nation and our world.
You can study on other campuses and in other countries
for a semester or an entire year, or you can choose a summer
program overseas. The Off-Campus Studies Program includes
study abroad and international or domestic exchange programs.
The Domestic Exchange Program allows students to take classes
at many esteemed colleges
around the country. The International Exchange Program
and the Study Abroad Program allow you to study at schools
around the world.
The possibilities for study abroad are endless. Just one
special opportunity is the Spelman
College Summer Art Colony, located at Taller Portobelo
on the Caribbean coast of the Republic of Panama. The Art
Colony attracts art students, emerging artists and students
interested in ethnographic research, Spanish, Latin American
Studies, and the African Diaspora, resulting in a very diverse
and interesting group of participants. The Art Colony is
not under the Study Abroad Program umbrella, so you should
contact Spelman professor and artist Arturo
Lindsay for an application.
To apply for admission to an Off-Campus Studies Program,
submit a completed application for off-campus study to the
coordinator of the Domestic Exchange Program (Dean Desiree Pedescleaux) by February 25 of the upcoming year, or submit a
completed application for Study Abroad to the director of
Study Abroad (Dr. Ganz)
by March 1 for the fall semester or October 15 for the spring
