SAFS is pleased and excited to announce that Samantha Murphy and Griffin Hoins, both undergraduate SAFS majors, were selected to receive a 2016 Bonderman Fellowship.
From the UW Bonderman webpage:
Fifteen University of Washington students were recently awarded Bonderman Travel Fellowships that will enable them to embark on solo journeys that are at least eight months long and take them to at least two regions and six countries of the world.
These fellowships, established in 1995 and worth $20,000 each, aim to expose students to the intrinsic, often life-changing, benefits of international travel. While traveling, students may not pursue academic study, projects or research. UW graduate students, professional students and undergraduate students are eligible to apply.
You can read more about Sam and Griffin’s travel plans on the Bonderman webpage. Please feel free to share widely and give them your congratulations!
