Allison Smith, a University of Pittsburgh student from Indiana, received a grant from Pitt’s Outside the Classroom Curriculum Advantage program to study abroad in the United Kingdom for six weeks.
Smith, the daughter of Steve and Marlinda Smith, of Indiana, will take classes and complete an internship while abroad. She is a junior majoring in communication science and disorders.
“With the $1,500 grant, I am able to accomplish one of my dreams of traveling abroad and seeing London,” she said.
Pitt’s OCC program was created to educate the whole student — mind, body, and soul — by selecting programs, activities and events that will specifically help them grow in each of goal areas: leadership development, career prep, wellness, service to others, appreciation of the arts, initiative and drive, appreciation of the arts, global and cultural awareness, communication skills, Pitt pride and developing a sense of self.
The Outside the Classroom Curriculum Pitt Advantage Grant provides undergraduate students with assistance for a summer study abroad experience, an unpaid internship or service learning project. All learning experiences must take place during the summer semester.
