Submitting a Proposal
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.
What is a Proposal Form?
This proposal form is not a commitment nor an application to a particular program. It is a declaration to that you are considering study abroad for the upcoming semester. (If you are interested in a future semester beyond next semester or year, you may sign up for our mailing list).
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. If you have questions about eligibility, please see a study abroad adviser.
- Students who have a grade point average of 2.80 or better are eligible to apply for UR-sponsored programs.
- 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.
