Pioneered by AIFS, customized faculty-led study abroad programs are formal arrangements between AIFS and educational institutions in which AIFS provides logistical support, student services, classrooms, housing facilities and cultural activities at a location abroad, plus student medical and program fee refund insurances and over $50 million of liability insurance for the U.S. college/university.
This arrangement enables institutions to conduct their own academic programs abroad at minimal expense for four weeks and upward (including semester). In order to keep costs affordable, programs require at least 12 to 15 students per faculty participating.Learn more
AIFS is a Supporting Access Partner of the Fund for Education Abroad. This means that in each academic year, AIFS contributes a specific amount of funds to support both scholarship applicants on AIFS programs, and the daily operations of the organization itself. Together we aim to increase the accessibility of AIFS Abroad study, internship, and customized faculty-led programs for underrepresented participants. We work together on marketing, outreach, and support for applicants and scholars.
