My son is applying to a Junior Semester Abroad program in Ecuador for next fall semester.

Where Should I Study Abroad?

I'm a junior, and I have until tomorrow (!) to figure out where I want to study in the spring. I'd like to be somewhere in Europe - I study medieval European history in school - but I can't chose the right place. I want to go somewhere beautiful and culturally rich, continually stimulating and well located. I don't care about the language, and I grew up overseas so I don't need to choose a place that will expand my 'comfort zone'. Give me suggestions? I'm open to anything!

Tips for a Rotary Ambassadorial Scholarship interview?

Anyone have any experience with the Rotary International Ambassadorial Scholarship? I'm applying (this week!) and it was indicated to me that almost all applicants go through an interview process. Any tips, suggestions, ideas on how to sell myself? (Additional info: I'm a doctoral candidate in English, focusing on contemporary world literature from places of long term conflict. I've heard that literature folks are not as well received because they don't "Focus on humanitarian projects.")
