Capstone Scholars Maymester Abroad
Each May the Capstone Scholars Program works with Faculty to develop a specific Maymester Trip for Capstone Scholars. We try to offer a variety of locations and topics. If you know of a great faculty member that would want to lead one of our study abroad trips in the future, don't hesitate to let us know!
