ArtFor over 50 years, thousands of students have explored the world through Drew’s International and Off-Campus Programs. Semester-long programs in New York and London, along with Drew International Seminars, enable them to gain a global perspective and hands-on experience, leading to prestigious internships and clearly defined career paths.

As valuable an experience as these programs are, they are also financially out of reach for many students. Thanks to the generosity of alumni, parents and friends, Drew is able to offer the following scholarships and awards to support these selective, innovative programs and help offset student expenses:

Joan Albanese and Louis Eccleston Endowment for Experiential Learning. Endowed in 2000 by these College graduates to support scholarships for students engaged in experiential learning or research, program costs for such initiatives, costs incurred by students for internships and other learning opportunities, and faculty development of new and progressive experiential learning opportunities or courses.
