Jeanie Anderson Memorial Fund

Jeanie Anderson Memorial Fund Undergraduate

Research/Creative Projects Grant for Students on Year-long Programs
This fund was established to remember Jeanie Anderson by providing grants to students studying abroad.  Jeanie was a UCSB student who was selected along with her three roommates to participate in EAP in 1972. After arriving in Bordeaux, France, she traveled to the north of Spain where she tragically drowned. 
The grants from this fund will provide resources to pursue learning beyond the classroom for students on year-long programs and/or allow them to establish unique relationships abroad to expand their learning experience.  Many of a student’s personal goals and dreams for international study can be translated into a grant proposal for an extracurricular project.  In the past, grants have been awarded for $500 to $1,000.  Some past projects have included “Acoustic Map: Sounds of Germany,” “Comparing Recycling Programs across Western Europe,” “Invasive Plant Species on the Island of Fernando de Noronha, Brazil,” “Flamenco Music Project,” and “Images from the Egyptian Revolution.”
