Call for summer field school proposals for 2020

CIP is looking for academic departments and faculty to offer 3-6 week international field schools in summer 2020. Fields schools are based on a collaborative partnership which brings faculty expertise and collegial connections together with CIP’s experience in financial and risk management, and central on-line application system. Essentially, departments provide the academic content and teaching and CIP assists with logistics and some supportive funding. Deadline for proposals is May 17, 2019. Information and forms are below.

A note about Semesters Abroad

Unfortunately, the Semester Abroad model (group of students spending a semester abroad with a Guelph faculty member) has become increasingly expensive for both students and the institution and student interest has dropped significantly in the last few years. In addition, tightening immigration rules around the world make it difficult for us to have students and professors teaching and learning abroad within the visa frameworks of our host destinations. Because of these and other challenges with this study abroad model, we will not be offering Semesters Abroad after Winter 2019.
