McKnight Scholarship (UNIV 3001)

Italy and Greece
One significant perk of the McKnight Scholarship program is that it offers scholarship recipients the opportunity to study abroad. The program offers one fully funded opportunity to travel with peers within the program. During the summer of 2023, the McKnight scholars will focus on leadership as it was seen and used in ancient Rome and Greece, and how these early concepts of leadership have affected the ways in which we lead today. It will have a philosophical approach on leadership. Cities we will visit include Florence, Rome, Vatican City, Delphi, and Athens, as well as visits to Santorini, Mykonos, and Crete. Major sites include the Colosseum, St. Peter’s Basilica, the Sistine Chapel, and the Parthenon. This opportunity is exclusive to students enrolled in the McKnight Scholarship program.
