• Juniors who show a lot of enthusiasm and commitment to the organization may also apply.

Expectations from Students of the World (SOW) team members:
• Curiosity, dedication, willingness to share one's experience with others
• Participation in a Weekly pre-trip sessions (these will require writing, reading and individual research, similar to a House Course) taught by SOW members (Spring semester)

• Collaborating on or initiating a post-trip project (photo exhibit, oral history, visiting Durham public schools, etc.)

Note: While the majority of the SOW trip is funded by grants and other fundraising, it is expected that participants will provides some individual contribution to the trip cost. In the past, this has been about $400. Please contact mmh19@duke.edu, if you have questions about the financial commitment or feel that you would be unable to participate for this reason.
