Carleton International is offering eligible Carleton students funding to participate in a field course in any Latin American or Caribbean country, under the supervision of a Carleton faculty member. Faculty members are also eligible for wrap around funding to support the cost of their own travel and accommodations. Funding amounts will depend on destination, duration, and costs incurred.

This opportunity is part of the International Research Mobility Experience (IRME) project, which is funded by the Global Skills Opportunity program, to support undergraduate students at CALAREO member institutions in outbound mobility to Latin American and Caribbean countries.

To be eligible, the field course must take place in the 2024 calendar year.  It can be a for-credit course or a non-credit study tour, with a duration between 1 and 4 weeks. A field course can be in any discipline or department.

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

Carleton faculty who have established field courses or are interested in creating new ones in the LAC region should contact Carleton International at to determine eligibility, funding amount, and next steps.
