Bryant University has created a program for sophomores to introduce them to another culture at a critical moment in their college careers. The Sophomore International Experience (SIE) features a semester-long class, which concludes with a two-week travel experience with fellow Bryant students, faculty, and staff members.
This introduction to another culture often motivates students to continue their international education through internships or traditional junior year study abroad programs.
Your Gift Means the World
Bryant's ambitious goal is to make the SIE available to all qualified sophomores -- up to 850 students each year. Academically and financially, this is a significant, even ground-breaking undertaking -- one which could prove impossible without the generous philanthropic support of corporations, foundations, and individual donors alike.
- An SIE Benefactor's contribution of $5,000 will help enable talented Bryant students to broaden their horizons through international travel.
- A $10,000 Global Leader's gift will help ensure the future of the SIE program.
- Naming opportunities are available at the $25,000 Signature Experience level, providing substantial support toward the cost of a semester-long course and two-week trip.
If your business is international in scope, or if you value diversity and international travel, we invite you to share your global vision with Bryant students.
