Study Abroad—Proposal Form
All students who intend to study abroad, whether on programs sponsored by UR, or on other institutions' programs, need to file this proposal no later than September 15 for Spring programs, or February 15 for fall or full-year programs.
This proposal form is not a commitment to study abroad, nor is it an application to a particular program. It is a declaration to The College that you are considering study abroad for the coming semester. (If you are interested in a future semester beyond next semester or year, you may sign up for our mailing list here).
Once I’m done with the proposal, what do I do next?
All programs (whether UR or non-UR) have their own application criteria and deadlines. UR programs are listed in the Study Abroad Handbook, UR There.
Can I go for more than one semester?
Students may study abroad for a total of two semesters. The semesters do not need to be concurrent. There is no limit on the number of summers you can go abroad. You do not need to submit a proposal if you are applying for summer study abroad only.
Please note the following:
- Juniors and first-semester seniors are eligible to go abroad during the regular academic year. There are also many programs open to sophomores.
Students who have a grade point average of 2.80 or better are eligible to apply for UR-sponsored programs. View a list of UR-sponsored programs »»
If you have questions about eligibility, please see a study abroad adviser.
- If you are applying to study abroad in world regions critical to U.S. interests (including Africa, Asia, Central and Eastern Europe, the former Soviet Union, Latin America, the Caribbean, and the Middle East) we urge you to apply for the NSEP David L. Boren Scholarship. For more information, full eligibility criteria, and the online application please access the NSEP Program web site at: www.borenawards.org. The internal UR deadline to apply is January 25, 2013.
