Is the program I’m interested in eligible for support for SIROCS funding?
Applicants may apply for SIROCS funding for a program or experience with a clear experiential component or components that will support your preparedness for your intended professional field. Programs or independently organized experiences must take place in a cross-cultural setting (usually outside the United States) and have a minimum length of two weeks. Most programs will be in the 2014-15 winter intersession; however, the SIROCS Committee will also consider proposals for funding for appropriate spring 2015 semester programs and experiences. Although most proposals will be for credit-bearing programs, non-credit bearing projects (e.g. volunteer work, non-credit internships) will also be considered.
SIROCS is the successor program to STOCS; current eligibility rules and application procedures apply.
