The Dallaire Scholarship
The Roméo Dallaire Scholarship allows qualified students from sub-Saharan Africa to study English in the United States. In studying and living with other students from throughout the United States and around the world, scholarship winners experience first hand the history and habits of diverse cultures even as they share with others their own traditions, customs, and beliefs. The Dallaire Award Fund continues to advance the principle that has guided Lewis & Clark’s innovative programs in international education for more than 40 years: global understanding is rooted in relationships, and relationships are built day by day and person to person.
The Zimbabwe Artists Project (ZAP)
ZAP celebrates the artistry and accomplishments of women from rural Weya in eastern Zimbabwe. Through education, sale of their art in the U.S., and special projects, ZAP helps women become economically self-sufficient. Women of Weya are subsistence farmers, mothers, and householders as well as artists. Most women live on their own, providing for families. Some are widowed, others are single heads of households, since throughout Zimbabwe men leave the rural areas to seek work in cities.
Women’s income from agriculture is unpredictable and limited. Sales of their art helps women afford food, clothing, school fees, medicines, transport, seeds and fertilizer. Since the market for Weya art in Zimbabwe is extremely limited, sales in the U.S. are critical. ZAP pays much more than any other buyer, delivering cash at the time of purchase. Equally important, ZAP provides health care to all of the artists, including care to artists who are HIV positive.
The Academic English Studies (AES) Program is located in Albany Quadrangle on the Undergraduate Campus.
