Hendrix-Murphy underwrites off-campus learning experiences relating to literary research, language immersion, and the craft of writing. These include both faculty-led group trips and independent experiences for students traveling solo. The latter may take the form of traditional study abroad in literature or language, or individualized projects that students design and propose themselves.
Hendrix faculty members often lead trips to literary conferences, festivals, archives, or heritage sites.
Individually designed study-travel in literature and language must have strong learning goals that fit with Hendrix-Murphy's mission and are feasible. Students may apply through our proposal process using the Student Cocurricular Project proposal form and following our proposal guidelines. Note that line-by-line help is also available! Deadlines are the same as Odyssey's (October 1, February 1, and April 1 of each year), and projects typically carry Odyssey credit.
