The International Division is pleased to announce that study abroad student Claire James is the inaugural winner of the Wolff Fellowship to continue her global education following graduation.

The College of Letters & Science’s Wolff Fellowship provides $45,000 to an L&S senior for post-graduation travel “to pursue their passions without limits,” as described by donors Paul Martin Wolff ’63 and Rhea S. Schwartz. Through advising with the International Internship Program, James was able to leverage existing IIP connections to construct her post-graduation itinerary, which includes travels and professional experiences in five countries across three continents. IIP assisted Claire in identifying international options, including IUEC in South Korea, ACADES in Malawi, Guy Healy in Japan, and the Sehgal Foundation in India.

James spent the 2021-2022 fall semester in France on a UW-Madison study abroad program in Aix-en-Provence.
