CHID is thrilled to congratulate CHID senior, Sol Moravia-Rosenberg for being chosen as one of seven undergraduates (University wide) to receive a $20,000 Bonderman Travel Fellowship!

Students traveling with this $20,000 fellowship set off on journeys that are at least eight months long and take them to at least two regions of the world. While traveling, students may not pursue academic study, projects, or research. Established in 1995, this fellowship aims to expose students to the intrinsic, often life-changing, benefits of international travel. UW graduate students, undergraduate students in the Honors Program and in UW Tacoma's Global Honors Program are eligible to apply.

Sol writes:

"I plan to travel through the greater part of 2012 through Ethiopia, Kenya, India, Vietnam, Brazil, Peru, and the Caribbean. I am most interested in learning about the role that music plays in people’s lives around the world, and how that role differs from that in the United States. As a cultural ambassador representing my community, I hope to converse and collaborate with other lovers of music from all corners of the earth. As an active musician I expect to return from this experience enabled and inspired to bring ideas and change to my home community."
