Undergraduate Study-Abroad Programs
Indiana University is a national leader in study abroad and sponsors several programs for students interested in studying abroad. Participation in these programs is not restricted to Southeast Asian majors and generally do not require any initial language proficiency. These programs offer regular Indiana University credit in specific courses. IU offers significant financial support for participants, for example the Hutton International Experiences Program (HIEP).
NOTE: Information on academic programs sponsored by institutions other than IU is available from the departmental Overseas Study Adviser and the campus Office of Overseas Study. Students who plan to study abroad with programs not directly sponsored by Indiana University should also consult the IU Office of Admissions and the departmental Director of Undergraduate Studies, concerning credit transferability before making any commitment.
Boren Scholarships, an initiative of the National Security Education Program, provide unique funding opportunities for U.S. undergraduate students to study less commonly taught languages in world regions critical to U.S. interests, and underrepresented in study abroad, including Africa, Asia, Central and Eastern Europe, Eurasia, Latin America, and the Middle East. The countries of Western Europe, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand are excluded.
Boren Scholars represent a vital pool of highly motivated individuals who wish to work in the federal national security arena. In exchange for funding, Boren Scholars commit to working in the federal government for at least one year after graduation.
NOTE: Boren gives special preference to applicants studying in one of the following South East Asian conutries: Cambodia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Phillippines, Thailand, Timor-Leste, or Vietnam.
If public service is your passion, the Peace Corps offers volunteers a wonderful opportunity to make a difference, while learning about a new culture. Indiana University is one of the top producers of Peace Corps volunteers nation-wide. Peace Corp volunteers serve several conutries in Southeast Asia including Cambodia, Indonesia, Myanmar, Phillippines, Timor Leste, and Thailand.
