Explore Korea Study Abroad Program
The sociology and anthropology department's study abroad program Explore Korea will take 15 Washburn students to South Korea for two weeks this summer. Explore Korea is the very first departmental study abroad program in 10 years. The students in the program will explore Korea's past, present and future with the unique opportunity to experience a wide range of Korean culture including K-food and K-music and to explore key social issues such as aging and immigration.

We aim to raise $2,000 on Day of Giving to offset student expenses as they visit numerous museums and cultural landmarks and experience hands-on activities like cooking and crafting. As studying abroad can be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for students, this excursion will be a transformative, life-changing experience for the students in the program.

As of now, the overall cost is set to $3,800 per student with Washburn Transformational Experience scholarships ($1,000). Unlike other departments, sociology and anthropology is not able to provide additional scholarships to the students. As travel costs are rising, we have to increase the overall cost per student without additional funding. This will add extra financial stress to the students. Your gifts will help ease their financial burdens.

To help send students to Korea, please make a gift to the Sociology & Anthropology Department Travel Fund.
