Joe S. Mundy Global Learning Endowment

The Joe S. Mundy Global Learning Endowment provides financial support for CEE students seeking to participate in individual or group international travel. Students may seek funding to help support travel for research, long- or short-term study abroad programs, internships, or just independent international travel.  The endowment gives students the opportunity to live, work, or study in a different culture and by doing so gain a global perspective on engineering, the arts, and geo-politics. International travel fosters independence and understanding and allows students to engage in cross-cultural communication. All of these benefits add value to your Georgia Tech degree and help create the next generation of global engineer-leaders. Mundy scholars have traveled the world. We invite you to be next!

“In the end, I think the most crucial virtue I’ll take away from this summer is tolerance and the importance of accepting peoples’ differences. The world is full of differing ideas, cultures and beliefs. We all carry ourselves in different ways, and getting the chance to explore a bit more of the world has shown me just how important it is to understand how others live their lives. It’s not enough to live life in the dark, sheltered by a blanket of ignorance. I wanted a broader education, and that’s precisely what I got.”
