Study Abroad to host India Winterim info sessions Aug 27 & 28

August 13th, 2018

Study Abroad, part of International Programs, will host an information session on its India Winterim program, on Monday, August 27, at 10:30 a.m. and Tuesday, August 28, at 1:30 p.m. in 1117 University Capitol Centre. 

Learn about our award-winning India Winterim program, a three-week, faculty-led study abroad program that allows students to learn from social entrepreneurs, non-profit organizations, and academic institutions at one of several sites throughout India. Topics to be discussed include an overview of the program’s 2018-2019 courses, costs, financial aid and scholarships, and the application process.

India Winterim is a field-based program which partners with Indian non-profits that address the most pressing contemporary societal issues. Students explore topics such as art and architecture, biodiversity, sustainability, education, entrepreneurship, housing, performing arts, healthcare, journalism, renewable energy, social work, and water resources. Over the last twelve years, the program has grown from one course with two faculty members and 17 students to one that encompasses numerous courses in different disciplines, enrolling an average of 100 students per year in multiple small sections and engaging dozens of UI faculty members.  Using the winter term provides opportunities to study abroad not previously available to students in engineering and health science fields.
