Proposals, arising from interests stimulated by a student's course work and Wabash experiences, should expand or deepen an area of study in a way not available through Wabash's traditional programs. Projects should be entirely student generated, although students are encouraged to consult with faculty or staff as they plan their projects and prepare their proposals. The Off-Campus Study Committee considers proposals. All opportunities presented must be unpaid. Internship opportunities must be with non-profit organizations. These opportunities are student initiated, and are not posted in WabashWorks. For more information see Dill Fund.
