Proposal to Study Abroad
ONLINE PROPOSAL FORM
Step 1: Proposal to Study Abroad Online Form (DO THIS FIRST)
Click on the link above to complete the online application. This should take you only 5-10 minutes to complete. After you have submitted the online Proposal to Study Abroad, you should begin working on the supporting documentation as outlined below. Your Proposal to Study Abroad will not be reviewed until all supporting documentation has been received.
Step 2: Acknowledgement Form
Print this form, read and sign (links below; pdf or Word). All eligible program participants under the age of 22, are required to have this form signed by a parent/guardian. Once complete, the ORIGINAL, SIGNED form (with original signatures from both the student and parent/guardian) should be dropped off to the OIP front desk or mailed to the address below. If it is not possible to return the completed, original form by mail or in-person, the form can be emailed directly to firstname.lastname@example.org (email must be received from the parent/guardian signing the form). ELECTRONIC SIGNATURES ARE NOT ACCEPTED.
Step 3: Statement of Purpose
Drop off, or mail a 1-2 page statement of purpose to the OIP (no emails, please!). We suggest that you turn in all supporting documentation at the same time. Be sure your name appears on your statement. Your statement should address the following questions:
- Why have you chosen to participate in the specific study abroad program listed on your Proposal? Please be as specific as possible.
(i.e.-If you are proposing to study abroad in Ireland, please explain not only why you wish to study in Ireland, but also explain why you have selected this particular program in Ireland vs. any other program in Ireland).
- How will participation in this specific study abroad program meet your academic, personal, and professional goals?
