The Office of International Programs and the University Honors Program

(Twin Cites campus) are pleased to announce the opening of applications

host culture.  Proposals should be for full-time study for a full

academic year or equivalent.  Applicants must be currently enrolled

undergraduates at any University of Minnesota campus; must have senior
