An opportunity to create your own journey, through intentional exploration of a new horizon or intellectual pursuit.
“The most valuable Pacifics we explore will always be the vast expanses within us.”
– Pico Iyer
Great travellers have always been inspired by a sense of adventure, curiosity and appreciation for the inner journeys made possible through travel.
In celebration of travel’s ability to expand our internal horizons, challenge our assumptions and teach us to engage with an increasingly complex world, CIPE presents the summer travel fellowship. This award offers students an opportunity to create their own learning journey, through intentional exploration of a new horizon or intellectual pursuit. The fellowship should be centred around learning through the medium of travel, and should be shared with the Yale-NUS College community in a meaningful way.
“I feel far more confident navigating the world’s streets, asserting myself strongly when I feel wronged. But alongside that ‘hardening’ to the world is also a certain softening, a certain openness to unpredictable and unknown opportunities.”
– Graham Link ’17, Yale-NUS College Travel Fellow
