Pre-Departure Course

Beginning in the Fall of 2017, all recipients of the Bailey International Travel Scholarships will be required to complete a 7-week online pre-departure course.  The Bailey Scholarship program has partnered with Omprakash EdGE to design a curriculum that will guide recipients as they reflect on their intentions and assumptions, examine problematic trends in international volunteering and within the broader landscape of aid and 'development” and dig deep into the concepts of ‘inequality’, 'culture' and 'community.'  Every student will also receive an EdGE mentor to answer questions and help throughout the process to think critically and challenge assumptions.
