The goal of the fellowship is to inspire the Harvard community to share John’s love for travel and for Italy.
One fellowship is awarded each year to fund summer or holiday travel to Italy. The recipient may use the award any time from the start of the summer in the award year to the start of the summer in the next year. The award provides approximately $2,000, enough to cover a two- or three-week visit.
The award is intended to introduce Italy to a student who has little familiarity with the country. The award is for travel that would not otherwise have happened, rather than for funding that the student would have taken anyway. The trip should be intellectually purposeful and personally enriching, but need not contribute in any way to an academic project. After returning, the student will share her or his experiences in a presentation to John’s family, friends, and the Mather House community.
