Study abroad deadline extended

The deadline for submitting proposals for study abroad and study away programs for fall 2015, spring 2016, and summer 2016 has been extended until April 13, 2015.

If you are interested in submitting a proposal, you can find the forms at gru.edu/studyabroad/forfaculty.php.

Proposals include the completed proposal form, contact hours form, budget form, a course syllabus for each course associated with the program, and an itinerary. Please remember that new and recurring programs need to be submitted in this format.

Study abroad proposals are for credit-bearing and clinical experiences outside the United States, while study away proposals are for credit-bearing experiences within the United States.

Conversations about these proposals should start in your department as they will require signatures from your chair, appropriate committees, and the Dean’s Office before coming to the study abroad committee. The Study Abroad Office is here to help should you have additional questions.

If you are interested in teaching on the European Council programs (Paris, London, Waterford, St. Petersburg, Madrid, Scotland, or Berlin), you can find applications at

valdosta.edu/academics/academic-affairs/international-programs/european-council/faculty-resources/.

These completed applications must be submitted to the European Council by March 24, 2015, for consideration to teach on a 2016 program. The applications also require signatures from your chair, dean, and the Vice President of Faculty and Academic Affairs.

Update on Individual Student Travel for Credit or Clinical Hours:

There is a process for students to follow if they are traveling outside the U.S. Any student seeking an opportunity to participate in an international experience related to academic coursework or clinical hours must complete the “Student Preliminary Application for Individual Travel” at least three months prior to travel and submit it to the Study Abroad Office. In order for the student’s travel and work abroad to be approved, this paperwork must be complete before the student travels. For more information, go to:

gru.edu/studyabroad/individualtravel.php.

Contact Maria Darley, Director of Study Abroad, at mdarley@gru.edu if you need more information on this process or these programs.
