The college provides many resources for program directors of faculty-led Spring Break, Maymester/Summer study abroad and exchange programs.
Prior to initiating a study abroad program or a partnership agreement with an institution abroad, all college faculty may meet first with CAS International Programs Director, Eric Friginal. Eric will help you through the many considerations when collaborating with a university overseas.
Below are relevant sample forms that can help you in your preparation to initiate a program:

1. Overall program cost must be under $3,000 per student
2. Arts and Sciences faculty members who have not yet run a program may be eligible for $1,000 in site visit funding from the Study Abroad Office and up to $1,000 from the College. Site visits enable potential Program Directors to look into all logistics of the program including: cost of living, local transportation, living accommodations, etc. To initiate the site visit process, please contact Eric Friginal.
3. The potential Program Director will need to submit a completed program proposal. This form can be obtained only by meeting with Eric Friginal or Stephen Murray, Office of International Initiatives (OII) Study Abroad Program Director. A completed program proposal will include the following two documents: a syllabus and credit-hour calculation worksheet (the proposed program must feature a minimum of 37.5 contact hours). Samples of both documents are available on this website under Faculty Resources.
4. There is typically $1,000 available in scholarship funding for GSU students. The College may offer additional support.
