Learn While You Travel.

CF Road Scholars provides students with educational travel opportunities both domestic and abroad. Study the arts of foreign cultures, practice a new language with native speakers, examine exotic ecosystems in the field, prepare to be competitive in the global marketplace, or learn more about your own national heritage through the CF Road Scholars program.

CF faculty bring their expertise to each trip, which typically last from one to two weeks in length. The travel programs can be taken for credit as part of a semester’s academic work, or simply for the experience as a noncredit trip. Education is the focus of CF Road Scholars but fun and adventure are also central to each program.
