“Conducting research in South Africa through the BISP was without a doubt one of the most exciting, challenging, and unforgettable experiences of my life--an experience that has directly shaped my academic interests and plans for the future. I am immensely grateful to have been given the opportunity.”
—Katie Gannet, BISP Fellow 2010
The Brown International Scholars Program (BISP) provides an opportunity for undergraduate students to make international studies an integral part of their Brown curriculum. Initiated by the Vice President for International Affairs and administered by the Swearer Center, the program grants fellows up to $5,000 to pursue independent research, public service, or student-designed projects abroad linked to their academic interests. By fostering reflection and dialogue among a community of scholars, leaders, and faculty mentors, BISP creates an enhanced context for students to probe the challenges and opportunities of international engagement.
