EPIC Advantage Faculty-Led Research and Project Programs

One opportunity frequently offered during May Term and the summer is the EPIC Advantage-funded faculty-led programs, which include both research programs and community project programs. Programs are planned for locations around the world and include hands-on learning that is relevant to your professional and personal development.

Credits. While these programs may also occur later in the summer, those scheduled during the May Term apply to the spring semester for credits earned. (Those scheduled for later in the summer apply to the following fall semester.) Depending on the program length, students will earn 1, 2, or 3 credits, although you may also choose to enroll for 0 credit. Students who exceed 18 credits in the semester will pay a credit overload fee. Program courses are graded for credit/no credit only.

Costs. Your one EPIC Advantage award fully funds participation in these programs, apart from any personal expenses (e.g., souvenirs, extra activities). There are no additional tuition or fee charges.

Cross-Cultural Pre Course. Participants will also complete a 1-credit pre-departure course on intercultural engagement in the spring semester prior to the program.

Applications and Timelines. Applications are housed in the online applicant system (link below), and the application deadline is usually November 1 of each year.
