The Zolondek Travel Award
The Zolondek Travel Award is a scholarship designed to enhance student travel opportunities in Europe for all students in the College of Design. To apply for the Zolondek Travel Award please follow this link.
Third Year, Fourth Year and Graduate students can apply for a scholarship to be used for their travel expenses while they complete a specific itinerary of destinations outlined below. Award amounts can range from $700 to $1500. The award provides supplemental funds for travel and is not designed to cover all expenses.
Interested students should complete the online proposal application, which will be reviewed by the College of Design Scholarship Committee. The scholarship will be awarded to students whose proposal application demonstrates a rigorous commitment and intention to meeting the travel agenda of the award.
Selected students will be required to visit various cultural and design-relevant sites in several cities. Once the visits are complete, the student will be required to submit a pictorial and written documentary report to the Dean’s Office.
The report must contain “evidence” of visiting each site in the selected city, be it a picture, sketch, or gate receipt. The report must also contain an essay about the value of the experience and visiting the sites. Reports will be archived in the College of Design Library.
Students who are selected must visit the three cities (London, Paris, Berlin) and one city-group listed below. Each site is linked below.
