CLASS: Student Study Abroad Grant

An international experience is an invaluable part of a student's education and will provide an international perspective which cannot be fully recreated within the classroom. To promote international study, the College of Liberal Arts & Social Sciences has created a small fund to assist students with costs related to study abroad.

Students must first apply for the funds from the Study Abroad office, once you submit your application to the Study Abroad office, you will need to print a copy as you will need it to submit with the College's Student Study Abroad Grant application.

Deadline: Ongoing. Requests will be reviewed and applicants notified via e-mail in 2 to 3 weeks.
Award Amount:
Varies (dependent upon the amount of funding available)


Faculty Led Study Abroad Opportunity

This summer Jordan Shurr will lead a faculty-led study abroad trip to Denmark to explore intellectual disability in terms of current and historical cultural perspectives as well as advocacy, policy, and services as compared to the US. There are 4 possibilities in coursework connected with this class including a course on the historical and current concept/ characteristics of intellectual disability (SPE 519- 3 credits), methods of instruction for students with ID (SPE 521- 3 credits), an international comparison in education course (SPE 545- 1 credit), or a combination of SPE 519 & 521. The trip itself is 12 days in country preceded by on campus coursework depending on the courses chosen by the student. I have included a link to my site with more information including informational session dates, program syllabus, estimated costs, etc. Please feel free to pass this along any students that may be interested and/or contact me with any questions.
