Overseas and Off-Campus Programs

Dinah Dodds Endowment for International Studies Application Deadline

Date: 4:00pm PST March 11, 2016

The Dinah Dodds Endowment for International Studies provides grants to students to allow them to extend their overseas experience in order to expand on work begun on their Lewis & Clark program. The fund also provides faculty grants to enhance specific programs—for example, by covering unbudgeted equipment or technology, seminars, and other educational resources.

The endowment was recently established by Missy Vaux Hall in honor of Dinah Dodds, professor emerita of German. “Through the years, I’ve been struck by the depth of Dinah’s engagement at Lewis & Clark and by her dedication to her students,” says Hall, a longtime friend of Dodds. “This endowment honors Dinah’s commitment and carries forward her legacy in international education.” Hall spent a year overseas when she was in college and understands the impact that such an experience can have on a student’s life. “I’m very committed to international education as a way to foster mutual problem solving and collaboration in this world,” she says. “If anything, it’s going to be more and more critical for people to have that experience, and I’m happy that this endowment will support that.”
