Study Away or Study Abroad

What is Study Away or Study Abroad and why is it important?

Study Away or Study Abroad is more than broadening their view beyond USF, the state of Florida, or the United States, and is not just a field trip or a quick tour. Studying Away or Studying Abroad challenges students academically, provides them with opportunities to connect and engage in different cultures, languages, and customs, and allows for learning important lessons outside the classroom. Studying Away or Studying Abroad encompasses experiences in studying domestically and internationally.

Provost’s Scholars can earn up to a $2,000 scholarship to be applied to a USF-sponsored program. Students will earn scholarship funds after having completed at least one of the Professional Development or Service/Leadership Foundational Experiences.

Provost's Scholars Program Dominican Republic Service Trip

Each May, the Provost's Scholars Program leads a service trip to the Dominican Republic for students to gain knowledge through community service and cultural immersion. PSP partners with the Kerolle Initiative for Community Health in Sousa, Puerto Plata to work with communities and community partners to learn about the Domincan Republic from different perspectives; citizens of the towns, educators, philanthropists, and servants to the communities in need. The Provost's Scholars Program is building a long-lasting relationship with stakeholders in the Dominican Republic with the goals of learning, service, and immersion in new cultures.

Applications for the May 2020 trip to the Dominican Republic will open in early Fall 2019. Please check back for more information!
