In addition to on-campus programming, the Hendrix-Murphy Foundation underwrites off-campus learning experiences relating to literature and language.


Immerse yourself in language through the Hendrix-Murphy Foundation’s Summer Language Programs in Costa Rica, France, Spain, and Taiwan. These 4-6-week faculty-led group trips partner with host-country institutions to offer literature and language classes that earn Hendrix course credit. Outside the classroom, students go on excursions to learn about local history and culture and to practice their conversational language skills.


Hendrix faculty members often lead group trips to literary conferences, festivals, archives, or heritage sites. Students may watch campus news outlets for opportunities to apply. Faculty members may propose study-travel projects using the Faculty-led Study-travel Proposal Form and the accompanying guidelines. Contact Foundation staff for additional information.


Individuals or groups of students may design their own study-travel projects and may apply for funding through our proposal process. These projects have strong learning goals and are anchored in literature or language.   


Students who enroll at universities around the world for a semester or year of study abroad and whose curriculum content is at least 50% literature or language may apply for funding.

At Hendrix College, every student has access to resources for travel and study abroad through the Hendrix-Murphy Foundation. Visit our Study Abroad Scholarships page to review qualifications and learn how to apply for aid. 
Murphy Scholars interested in using their study-travel funds to study abroad should review the Scholars FAQs page and the Scholars Info Hub, then contact with questions.
