International Service Learning
The University of Richmond is pleased to offer international service learning experiences during the summer months to traditional undergraduate students. International service learning opportunities take students beyond study abroad and engage them in community service at local non-profit organizations, municipal offices, schools, and clinics abroad.
Our international service learning programs are offered in partnership with ISA Service-Learning. ISA connects dedicated people looking to make a positive impact with over 20 diverse communities abroad, featuring partnerships with over 100 non-profit, governmental and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) worldwide that have identified needs and projects.
During students’ time abroad, ISA provides on-site staff and support to help students focus and reflect on service-learning experience. By offering step-by-step guidance as well as individual and group reflection exercises, ISA service-learning programs allow students to observe how change is being affected in communities across the globe and to grapple with the complexities of real-world issues.
Update: The application deadline for all International Service Learning programs has been extended to February 24, 2017!
UR Summer Fellowship Funding
These internships are eligible for UR Summer Fellowship funding as part of the Richmond Guarantee. Summer Fellowship funding requires a separate application after notice of placement, but several elements from the internship application process may be used for the Summer Fellowship application as well. Be aware that funding amount is dependent on the number of hours worked during the service learning experience.
Internships that are both outside of the U.S. and outside of your home country are also eligible for Weinstein Summer Grant support for travel expenses. In order to be eligible, you must submit both a UR Summer Fellowship application to one of the five internship funding programs AND to the Weinstein Summer Grant program. Weinstein Grants are awarded on a merit basis.
