Study Abroad

RC students take their language skills and passion for social justice into the world in myriad ways every year, contributing to the fact that the University of Michigan has the most students studying abroad among Big Ten universities and is fourth in the nation among higher education institutions. 

Since 2008, the RC has awarded over $150,000 to students pursuing study abroad, internships, and other academic experiences. 

The Residential College abides by University measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19. This includes any travel restrictions described on the Center for Global and Intercultural Studies website, as well as the domestic and international travel details on the Global Michigan website.
