The Dinah Dodds Endowment for International Studies was established by Missy Vaux Hall in honor of Dinah Dodds, professor emerita of German. It provides funds to Lewis & Clark students wishing to continue and expand research projects begun during their overseas study program. It also supports faculty leaders who wish to enhance their programs through the addition of technology, seminars, or new equipment.
Annual earnings from the fund are used to further the educational mission of the college in the area of international studies, primarily in the following areas:
1. Student International Research Grants - for students who wish to expand upon work related to an overseas study program.
2. International Program Enhancement Grants - for additional program components not otherwise covered in the program budget.
