Developing a USF St. Petersburg Education Abroad Program
The University of South Florida St. Petersburg Education Abroad Office, in partnership with USFSP academic units and colleges, is here to help faculty develop and coordinate education abroad programs for our students. Education abroad programs offer academic instruction that is either provided by a USFSP faculty member, or within specially-contracted host institutions.
Typically, education abroad programs are offered during the summer. However, programs may be offered during the fall or spring semesters as part of a regular semester long course.
Don't wait . . . plan ahead!
Developing your proposal takes a significant amount of time and you will need to plan well in advance of the deadline. Detailed information is needed including an itinerary, locations, accommodations, internal transportation, program activities and a completed budget worksheet.
Review of formal program proposals takes place on a rolling cycle during the year. In order to be approved in time for sufficient marketing and program planning, proposals ideally should be submitted one year in advance of the planned program start date. Early submission of proposals is critical due to the complexities of developing any new program. Program publicity and student planning, including student access to financial aid, are adversely affected by late program approvals. In addition, because of the limited number of staff resources within the Education Abroad office, we cannot approve an unlimited number of program proposals.
The proposal must be complete and submitted by the deadline in order to be reviewed and approved by the USFSP Study Abroad coordinator and forwarded for risk analysis through USF World.
How to Submit a Proposal:
All proposals must be submitted on-line via the USF World system by the USFSP deadlines.
