SOLO developments enhance student travel preparation

SOLO (Stanford Off-campus Learning Opportunities), a partnership between OIA and 20+ academic units on the Stanford campus, aggregates internships, research fellowships, public service trips, study tours, and other Stanford opportunities for students to go off-campus and enrich their academic experience. The website can be used by administrators to post opportunities, collect and review applications, and to help prepare awardees for their off-campus travel.

OIA - BOSP Companion Grants integrate research with teaching abroad

Six Stanford faculty members have been awarded grants that will enable them to better pursue collaborative research while serving as faculty-in-residence directors for the Bing Overseas Studies Program. The faculty members will pursue research into such areas as water contamination in Chile, the inscription of sound in Japan, the engineering of opera in in Florence, the philosophical analysis of interaction in France, and digital economy in South Africa. These grants were made possible by the Roberta and Steve Denning International Research Exploration Fund.

Stanford platform offers central location for off-campus learning programs

Students interested in pursuing internships, research projects, public service gigs and study tours – across the United States and around the world – will find an ever-growing list of activities listed on the new platform, Stanford Off-Campus Learning Opportunities.

Undergraduate and graduate students alike are invited to search the platform – known as SOLO for short – by keyword and/or by location – for programs off the Farm.

Call for Proposals for 2017 OIA-BOSP Companion Grants

The Office of International Affairs International Research Exploration Fund helps faculty maximize global opportunities that enrich research and learning and that broaden the impact of both. Through an extensive network of collaborators on campus and abroad, OIA helps faculty and students find the most efficient path to getting their international research projects launched. Grants are supported by the Vice Provost and Dean of Research.

OIA launches opportunities platform to alleviate student and staff burdens

University data shows that more than 600 undergraduate students travel on extended Stanford academic international opportunities that are provided by academic units outside of the Bing Overseas Studies Program. Understanding the student challenge in finding these opportunities, the OIA convened a core group of initial stakeholders from diverse places on campus looking to alleviate this student burden.

OIA launches opportunities platform to alleviate student and staff burdens

Picture this, you’re a Stanford student interested in gaining some international experience through a Stanford opportunity during spring or summer break. Where do you start your search?

Of course, you can go to one of the larger units on campus that offer such opportunities, such as, the Bing Overseas Studies Program (if you are an undergraduate), Stanford Global Studies or the Haas Center for Public Service, but is there more? The answer is, YES, there is much more, but how do you find these opportunities?
