Hi All,

Most of you have heard about the domestic study "abroad" program that I direct to the Navajo Nation. Last year we had two of our graduate students participate. I want to give you all the chance to consider this opportunity. I realize that the way OU configures their Global Opportunities programs are not very graduate-student friendly as it comes to cost.

I have attached the flyer for the program that will take place this year from December 28th through January 6th. Deadline for applications is October 1st so it will come up fast. (If you are willing to do a little extra academic work during Spring semester, I am happy to work with you to develop this as an elective in your program.)

Here is the financial issue:

OU processes tuition for undergrads and grads in different ways. For undergrads, their tuition dollars go directly to the Global Opportunities office and they are able to simply add this winter break trip on their Spring schedule. Therefore, the all-inclusive (except for airfare to Arizona) is $1681.

Because graduate tuition goes to a different place, most graduate students have to pay for their own tuition attached to a study abroad program (3 semester credits). Because of this, the fee for you all is $3004. There is one exception to this, and that is if you are fortunate enough to have the tuition benefit for employees or as an employee dependent, then you can deduct $1515 for your tuition, which brings the cost down to $1489. The two grad students who went with us last summer were able to use this benefit.

Take a look at the flyer if you are interested at all -- it is a phenomenal experience and we are excited to give this a try during Winter in the Arizona desert and celebrate the New Year in a meaningful way.

We're excited to see you all soon and hope the dog days of summer simmer down by that time.

Best,  --Theo
