Research and Service Funding for GELS members
GELS members are often invited to apply for a grant from the Inamori Center to help fund an experiential learning project. These projects have typically involved travel that relates to a student's development as an ethical leader and a responsible global citizen. Some previously funded projects examples:
- Zach Kloos raised money to build a kindergarten in Nepal, then was able to travel there, personally help with the building, and attend the dedication ceremony for the new school
- Cameron Macaskill journeyed to Bosnia to study their post-conflict progress towards reconciliation and to compare it to post-Apartheid South Africa
- Sabina Kumar went to India to research attitudes about poverty and access to basic health care and compare them to those in the U.S.
- Fynn MacPherson joined a National Peace Academy trip to learn conflict resolution techniques at the Peace University in Costa Rica
