Study Abroad


Additional Details & Application

The Kent State University College of Arts and Sciences is leading a 2019 study abroad experience to Poland. Kent State Trumbull will provide $3500 scholarships for two Trumbull students; the total cost of this study-abroad trip is less than $4000.  That means your out-of-pocket cost for a once in a lifetime trip is only $475. Here are more details.

Visit one of the most rich and historically important countries in Europe and experience history firsthand.  Students will be introduced to the Holocaust as it occurred in Poland from varying points of view represented by survivors, films, art, and museum representations.  Students will also have the opportunity to experience firsthand many of the historic sites with the belief that seeing will lead to everlasting memories and understandings of the horrific events of this period of time.  Students will be required to keep and submit a journal based on their trip and submit and present a creative project of their choosing. The trip will include visits to Warsaw, Krakow, Łódź, and Auschwitz – Birkenau. Students will visit museums, share open dialogue with speakers, have the privilege to meet with Survivors and Righteous among the Nations, as well as students and professors from local universities.
