The International Research Mobility Experience (IRME) project offers eligible undergraduate students enrolled at a CALAREO member institution funding to participate in a field course or study tour in a Latin American or Caribbean country under the supervision of a faculty member from their home institution.

Carleton faculty who have established field courses or are interested in creating new ones in Latin America or the Caribbean can either nominate up to 3 students for funding or direct eligible students to submit an expression of interest form below. All nominees/applicants must be underrepresented students who self-identify as low-income, Indigenous, or students with disabilities. Each award recipient will receive $5,000 for travel and accommodations, and other related expenses.  Additional funding can be provided for students who need extra support (ex. for dependents/caregivers).

Field schools may be a for-credit course or a non-credit-based extra-curricular activity. Both mobility experiences are eligible for funding. The duration of the field school may be 1 to 4 weeks.

Faculty members will be responsible for fully developing the course, finding partners abroad, securing locations for classes and accommodations, and arranging travel and transportation.
