Maize Away

Spend your May away taking a three-credit, three-week course abroad on one of our Maize Away programs. This type of experience was designed to make study abroad more accessible to students with less flexible schedules whether it be because you are an athlete, have a summer job or internship, or have specific courses you need to take on campus during the summer term. Other students choose this option because they would like to study abroad for the first time on a shorter experience or would like to combine this program with another program. Topics and locations vary from year to year and some programs are led by UM faculty whereas others are taught by local faculty. 

2018 offerings include the following:

"Receiving the LSA Study Abroad Scholarship was a complete dream come true. Without the support and aid from LSA and CGIS, I would never have been able to travel or study abroad. In general, studying abroad always seemed unattainable and just a far off fantasy. However, thanks to this program, I was able to experience other cultures and more of the world. This study abroad experience allowed me to grow and change far beyond what I ever thought possible. I was impacted so positively by the experience that my life will forever remain changed. From my academics to future career goals, receiving this scholarship and traveling has created so many new avenues for my life."
