Independent Studies

Submission Deadlines:

Fall 2014: April 4, 2014

Submission Instructions:

Before submitting an Independent Study Application, please read thoroughly the Frequently Asked Questions. We also recommend giving your intended faculty sponsor the Faculty Info Sheet for more information about being a (G)ISP/AI sponsor.

All GISPs, ISPs, and AIs need to submit the Independent Study Application and a Faculty Sponsor statement, along with any appropriate supplements in the list below. Submission instructions are within the documents.

Application must be submitted to Independent_Study@brown.edu by the deadline.

Check out (G)ISP Sample App 1(G)ISP Sample App 2, and (G)ISP Sample App 3 for good examples of completed (G)ISP proposals. To see other previously approved GISPs, visit the Past GISPs Database.

Every student participant in a GISP is expected to contribute to the course syllabus. For this reason, no student may enroll in a GISP after its proposal has been approved.
