The Meg Walsh Award provides one graduating senior from the Zanvyl Krieger School of Arts and Sciences with $15,000 to undertake an independent project of their own unique design involving international travel.

The award affords the opportunity for a promising Hopkins graduate to focus on an independent project that explores his or her own interests and abilities, test knowledge and assumptions in a broader international context, and develop leadership skills.

Projects may be in any area, including public service, creative or artistic, research—whatever the applicant desires. The project may not, however, include extended study at a foreign university.

The Meg Walsh Award application is currently available at

The application and all required materials are due to KSAS Development, Wyman Building, 500W by noon on Monday, Dec. 1.

Seniors who are graduating from the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences during the 2014-2015 school year are encouraged to apply.
