Study Abroad

Because RC students have the advantage of participating in the intensive language programs, most learn how to engage the world around them in unique substantive ways. RC students don’t just enroll in foreign universities, they explore and interact with the people and culture in challenging ways. Overall, U-M is third in the nation among higher education institutions for the number of students who study abroad with 3,214 U.S. students in 139 countries earning credit in education-abroad programs in 2016-17 — the most recent academic year with complete data — according to the annual Open Doors report by the Institute of International Education, a New York-based nonprofit.

Of course, RC students also have the same exciting abroad opportunities that are available to all LSA students through the Center for Global and Intercultural Study (CGIS) and the International Institute. These are wonderful U of M resources so please check them out as well. 

In addition, RC students can also apply directly to the RC for funding support for their abroad projects. The Donald & June Brown Endowment Fund, which began in 2007 with a generous anchor gift from former RC and Psychology Professor Donald Brown and his wife June, takes applications two times per year. These scholarships are specifically for study abroad, internships and travel with RC classes. Go to this page for more information about scholarships for activities beyond our campus.
