The McCulloch Center will launch an online study abroad application in September (modeled on the UAF), which will enable faculty to submit recommendations via MyMountHolyoke. In the meantime, only students applying to study abroad in spring 2014 should be asking faculty to use this webform. Please do not complete this form for any students applying to study abroad in fall 2014 or beyond.
We require a faculty recommendation for students applying to Mount Holyoke programs and exchanges abroad, and for all students applying for Laurel Fellowships (need-based financial aid). Financial aid does not transfer automatically for study abroad.
In August 2011, we sharpened the eligibility criteria for Laurel Fellowships. We want to prioritize Laurel support for students who fall into either or both of the following categories:
- Students who have little or no previous experience outside the U.S., regardless of their major
- Students whose program of study abroad will significantly enhance their work in their major or minor
If you are writing a recommendation in support of a Laurel Fellowship application, we would greatly appreciate your honest assessment of the extent to which one or both of these criteria apply. For additional information, please see the full description of Laurel Fellowship Criteria.
