Editor’s note: This page will soon (see below) feature a list of helpful resources for all SPANners, friends and faculty. Thank you for your patience.

SPAN, the Student Project for Amity among Nations, is Minnesota’s oldest, and one-of-a-kind study and research abroad program. It was founded in 1947 by a group of students who saw the need for international understanding. Since its inception, nearly 3,000 SPANners have visited 93 countries on six continents. As a student-led non-profit organization, the Minnesota SPAN Association offers every SPAN participant a scholarship. SPAN is open to students from all Minnesota colleges and universities.
