New Study Abroad Proposal Process

The Center for Global Engagement is soliciting study abroad proposals (SAPS) for 2023 (spring and summer). While you may not have seen the official announcement, information is available on the Education Abroad webpage regarding proposals. The deadline for summer 2023 proposals is September 1. 

In recent years the COB has offered abbreviated study abroad programs primarily between spring and summer terms. Though proposals for these trips between spring and summer will be accepted, demand for more than one, excluding Executive Programs, is low. We encourage alternative study abroad proposals. Historically, faculty have also developed innovative programs, including spring break excursions (domestic and international), short summer courses (2-4 weeks) overseas, longer wholistic offerings (5-12 weeks), or hybrid program models that include both online and study abroad components. Regardless of the term, compensation for the administration, execution, and instruction of SAPs is a $7,000 overload payment; courses must meet enrollment requirements to run. 

If you are interested in proposing a faculty-led program during 2023 (or fall 2024), your first step will be to review the information on the Faculty Study Abroad Program webpage.

As part of our efforts to enhance global learning opportunities for our students and also expand the international reputation of the College, we hope to have several successful SAPs for the coming academic year. If you have questions about the process or want to discuss potential ideas for programs, feel free to contact Dr. Marc Rhorer (7-1210 or mrhorer@fau.edu) for guidance.
