American students study at each site: Beijing, China; Rennes, France; Viterbo,
Italy; and Zaragoza, Spain. More information and applications are available at www.sya.org. Apply online by February

“collaboratory” housed in a historic residential facility. For more information and details about the

Summer Travel Study Programs
These travel study programs are preceded by classes at Punahou. Generous need-based financial aid is available to students.
Deadlines for these programs vary because of required travel arrangements. All deadlines precede regular course programming with the deans, so students must plan ahead.
