UI Funded International Travel - Travel Warning Check
Please note this new International Programs policy regarding student travel (as of 2015-16):

Prior to consideration for UI funding for international travel, students must: 

1. Verify that their travel destination(s) are currently NOT under any U.S. DOS Travel Warning or an Alert.  To do this, students must visit the US DOS website and enter the destination(s) in the “Refine by Country” search bar.  If there are no current warnings or alerts, students may continue with their application. 

2. If there is a current warning or alert, students must contact International Programs at safety-abroad@uiowa.edu to discuss their proposed travel plans and request guidelines for drafting a travel proposal for International Programs Travel Advisory Committee (IPTAC) review. Funding will not be released without approval from IPTAC.

For more details about the review policy and process, please visit this page. 

For questions about the IPTAC review process, please e-mail safety-abroad@uiowa.edu
