14th Annual Odyssey Travel Grant Drawing at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago
Where in the world would you go if you had $1,500 to spend?
WHAT: Drawing for 20 $1,500 awards to travel wherever your heart desires!
HOW: SUBMIT YOUR ENTRY FORM by Monday, March 14, 2011. Remember, only one entry per student.
WHEN: Celebration and lottery drawing will happen on Wednesday, March 16 at 4:30 p.m. All students are encouraged to come celebrate. Your presence is not required to win a $1,500 Odyssey Travel Grant; however, there will be “Surprise Awards” that require you to be present to win. Plus we guarantee that it is far more exciting to win a grant when doing so in front of hundreds of cheering friends and students!
WHERE: MacLean Ballroom (112 South Michigan Avenue)
WHY: Since 1998 Marion Parry, a friend of SAIC, has generously provided the means for students to travel to destinations around the globe. Travel can change your perspective, fuel your imagination, allow you to test new waters, and to find inspiration. For the past 13 years, Marion’s grants have facilitated students’ travel around the U.S. and the world.
If you are chosen as a recipient of an Odyssey Travel Grant, you will be required to submit receipts to confirm the disbursement of funds, a tax document and photo release, a one-page travel essay/summary, and digital images upon your return.

Must be on track to complete 30 undergrad or 15 grad SAIC credits by the end of Spring 2011 semester
Grant money is valid only for travel and must be used by January 31, 2012

Good Luck & Bon Voyage!
