Study Asia: Summer Institute for High School Students

www.kzoo.edu/asia/institute/index.htm
*Study Asia:

Summer Institute for High School Students**:*

Each year, the Summer Institute provides students the opportunity for more in-depth study about a particular area or issue related to Asia, and a chance to personally visit the places and people they have studied

in the classroom.  The 2004 program will provide students with unique opportunities to visit China.*

*

Program information:

This is a demanding course of learning.  Students will study one aspect of Asia, to be determined by the course instructor each year.  Topics may include the people, art, language, culture, history, religion, or literature

of the region.  Students will study about Asia with Kalamazoo College faculty, staff, and students.  The course begins on campus and continues with two weeks in East or Southeast Asia.

Who is eligible:

We invite high school students who are currently *sophomores and juniors* to apply for the program.  No experience abroad is necessary.  The Freeman Foundation grant covers all room, board, and travel expenses on-campus and in Asia, with the exception of a $500 participation fee, travel costs to and from Kalamazoo College, and incidental expenses as noted in the program description.

Application information:

For an application, see your high school counselor or contact Chandra Simms at the Center for Asian Studies at Kalamazoo College at 269-337-7133 or csimms@kzoo.edu .  Applications must include a completed application form, a high school transcript, and two completed recommendation forms from a teacher and a school counselor (to be sent directly to the Center for Asian Studies).  Review of applications will begin on April 15, 2004 and continue until filled.  Please send your completed application to:
