2012 SEE-Beyond Awards

A SEE-Beyond award can be used to support a wide range of experiences that put classroom learning into practice, or deepen a student's knowledge or understanding of the discipline. Internships, field research, artistic residencies, laboratory research, apprenticeships, productions... the list is as lengthy as it is varied.
