Summer Study Abroad

UCR Faculty

Travel Study Opportunity - Student Boarding Train

Request for Proposals (RFP)

The Office of Undergraduate Education (UE) invites faculty to submit proposals for summer study abroad programs to be offered during Summer Session 2015. The deadline for proposals is Tuesday, July 15, 2014.  The faculty RFP is available in Word or PDF versions.

UE seeks programs that align with our mission to promote academic excellence and student success. Summer Study Abroad programs offer students the unique opportunity to study closely with a UCR faculty member, while living abroad and obtaining academic credit. Programs will offer eight units of academic credit (e.g., two, four-unit courses) and will be four weeks abroad. Each program will include a faculty member (instructor of record) and a summer Teaching Assistant (TA). TA employment is a unique feature of UCR’s summer study abroad program; TAs will provide instructional and logistical support during the program. Programs would be offered during Summer Sessions;  each session is five weeks long, including one week of pre-departure course activities and four weeks abroad. Ladder-rank faculty are eligible to apply.

A faculty information session will be held on Wednesday, June 4 at 12pm (Surge Building, Room 308).

For more information, please contact Elizabeth Claassen Thrush, Coordinator, at ext. 27739 or via email at; or Christine Victorino, Assistant Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education, at ext. 22617 or via email at
