University of Lethbridge students will have the opportunity to participate in a once-in-a-lifetime experience thanks to the generosity of the Brawn Family Foundation. Each year, the Foundation will provide a scholarship for one U of L student to take part in Semester at Sea, consisting of a 100 to 110 day international passenger ship voyages where students visit up to 15 countries in one semester. They learn from leading faculty and international experts, engage in hands-on field experiences and service projects at each destination and earn academic credit. The Brawn Family Foundation scholarship will be available to students across all disciplines at the University. Kely Buckley, Director of the Foundation and one of the daughters of Dr. Robert Brawn, says he father realized what a powerful program Semester at Sea was. Buckley notes when she sailed it made a big impact on her life and other family members who've taken part. U of L students can now apply online to be the first successful University of Lethbridge Brawn Family Foundation scholarship candidate to sail with Semester at Sea.
