Smith’s goal is to prepare students to live in a global society by offering a rich array of international and intercultural opportunities for all students, from the first year to their culminating year on campus. All students have the opportunity to study, work, participate in research or travel abroad or have an internationally oriented experience in the United States.
Global Faculty-Led Experiences (FLEX)
The Lewis Global Studies Center's FLEX programming initiative offers faculty opportunities to design and lead short-term global learning travel programs (1–3 weeks) to either enhance an existing course or as a newly credited course offered during winter, spring or summer breaks. This initiative replaces the former Global Engagement Seminars. The goal is to build a range of global experiential learning activities that can be readily adapted to departmental and faculty interests. Programs may be outside of the United States or have a global theme within the United States.
Please direct any questions about the Global FLEX program or the process to Laura Gomez.

Funding Global Experiences
The Fellowships Office, the Office for International Study and the Lazarus Center for Career Development advise students and alumnae applying for international fellowships (such as the Rhodes, Marshall, Mitchell, Fulbright, Luce and NSEP) and for international internships and jobs. Also, the Office for International Study allocates funds for international experiences.
Academic departments typically provide links to opportunities for research and grants for funding; be sure to check the department's website and connect with your academic adviser to see what's available.
