International UTRA

The International UTRA supports collaborative research or teaching projects abroad. Applications to work abroad will be considered only when both the faculty and the student are traveling and are on-site together.

Students may only apply for an international UTRA during the summer. Semester international awards are not permitted. Students who are interested in conducting research while abroad during the academic year should consider the possibility of a Global Independent Study Project (GLISP), sponsored by Brown's Office of International Programs.

The stipend for an international UTRA is $4000. Students who receive an international teaching award with a semester extension receive an additional $1000 stipend during the semester of the teaching assistantship.

Brown may, at its discretion, prohibit undergraduate study abroad or other university-sponsored undergraduate activity at sites where the severity of the U.S. State Department Travel Warning is particularly acute. For additional information and a list of countries on the Travel Prohibition list, please visit  Brown's Office of International Programs website.
