Student scholars have the opportunity to perform research and gain experience outside their home culture through Study Abroad programs. The Daytona Beach Office of Undergraduate Research and Prescott’s Undergraduate Research Institute work in partnership with their corresponding Study Abroad offices to help students experience research in the global community.
Some past projects include:
- water purification in Haiti
- engine maintenance in Austria
- business ethics in China
- tropical climate in the Amazon rain forest
- mountain meteorology in the European Alps
- controls and space mechanics in Germany
In addition to these projects, students may also select Faculty-Guided Research Abroad programs, in which they work and research with faculty members. Please visit the respective campuses for more information on Study and Research Abroad programs offered at the Prescott Campus or the Daytona Beach Campus.
The Prescott URI and Study Abroad Office can assist students with identifying research-focused study abroad opportunities and URI funding can be used to help support these international research opportunities.
The Ignite Abroad program at the Daytona Beach Campus selects seven students each year to conduct cultural-based field studies in:
- family structure
- other social factors
Summer Study Abroad Experience programs typically last two to five weeks, and may be tailored toward research opportunities and the Ignite student learning outcomes.
The Daytona Beach Office of Undergraduate Research and the Prescott Undergraduate Research Institute can help students connect with opportunities, including the National Science Foundation Research Experiences,NanoJapan, and Rise research awards with travel grants, global internships, research-based alternative spring break programs, and more.
