Antonella Diaz ’23 Receives Fischlowitz Travel Fellowship
Congratulations to Antonella Diaz ’23, this year's recipient of the Fischlowitz Travel Fellowship.
Diaz will explore the U.S. — New Orleans, Nashville, New York City, and Los Angeles — in a journey to form meaningful human connections by embracing the fear of befriending strangers and asking for their unique perspectives.
The fellowship provides an opportunity for Grinnell international students to pursue casual yet purposeful independent travel in the United States, focused on deep exploration of a chosen theme.
One award of $5,400 is available each year, made possible through the generous support of Teresa and Merle Fischlowitz ’53. Fischlowitz remembers his friendships with students from abroad as one of the most rewarding aspects of his time at Grinnell. He believes traveling independently in the United States has the power to enrich an international student’s education beyond what can be accomplished by living for a few years in any single community. This award was established to provide opportunities for meaningful travel to students who might not otherwise be able to pursue it during their time at Grinnell.
