A global experience
You’ll find SFIS students not only in classrooms, but around the world. Studying abroad is a great way to explore foreign cultures, reflect on your place in the world, and challenge yourself. We encourage all students interested to participate in a study abroad program. SFIS faculty lead study abroad programs most years, and scholarship are often available at SFIS as well as through the Study Abroad Office.
“Studying abroad in Cuba was truly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity... This opportunity gave me the chance to completely immerse myself in another culture where I learned invaluable lessons from the Cuban people on how to persevere in the midst of changing political, social, and economic climates.
Studying abroad in granted me an intimate look into the rainforest where I was able to directly apply my conservation biology studies...
Studying abroad is truly such a unique opportunity that everyone should take advantage of. It gives you a "behind-the-scenes" look of another country with an incredible amount of learning, risk taking, and growth. Studying abroad helps students make connections to what they learned in the classroom and apply it to the real world. We should all let the world become our classroom!”
