The trips include visits to Scotland in mid-March and Paris/London in late May. 
 
The Scotland trip includes visits to Rosslyn Chapel, Edinburgh Castle, Falkland Palace and Glencoe during spring break, March 9-17, 2012. A program fee of $2,166 per person includes transportation, accommodations, breakfast and three evening meals.  Applications are being accepted through January 15 and must be accompanied by a $500 deposit. 
 
For those interested in visiting Paris and London, the May 20-29 trip include Buckingham Palace, Stonehenge, Arch de Triumph, Louvre Museum, Notre Dame Cathedral and the Palace of Versailles.  The program cost for the Paris/London tour is $2,193 and includes airfare, ground transportation, rail fare, all accommodations, some meals, insurance and the services of an experienced UVa-Wise faculty member as tour guide.
 
Participants will earn one humanities credit hour for the London/Paris trip and a limited number of $500 scholarships are available.  A preliminary meeting to answer questions regarding the Paris/London trip and provide additional details will be held Monday, Jan. 30 in Darden Hall, 214 at 1 p.m.
