Re: [elissa] Choosing an MFA Program (2009) (2010) (2011)
Check out Wyoming's MFA. Their website talks about how they have supported past student projects that included traveling abroad.
Here's an excerpt from their website's FAQ section:
"We are also aggressive in continuing to seek opportunities for our
students once they've arrived in the program, and we actively
collaborate with students on grant applications for research, travel,
and writing support. Our students win numerous departmental and
university scholarships, including English department scholarships, ENR
program grants, and coveted Arts and Sciences Independent Study Awards
that support summer writing projects. Through our program's travel
grants, recent students have traveled to Mexico, China, France,
England, Canada, Germany, Indonesia, Iceland, and Uruguay and returned
with exciting new material for their fiction, poetry, and non-fiction."
