Study USA is a study abroad exchange program supported by the British Council and Northern Ireland.  The British Council aims to build engagement and trust between people of different cultures through the exchange of knowledge and ideas, while a student from Grove City College is studying at Queen’s University Belfast, University of Ulster, St. Mary’s University College, or Stranmillis University College. This is a very competitive process and allows for study for a semester or entire academic year, tuition free.  Concurrently, students from Northern Ireland study at designated partner institutions in the U.S.  Grove City College is a partner institution and typically hosts one student from Northern Ireland each academic year, while one or more Grove City College students studies in Northern Ireland.

Details of the program, requirements and application information are available in the Office of International Education prior to the beginning of spring semester, with scholarship for funding study abroad provided by Study USA.  Applications for the 2015-2016 school year are available here.  Instructions for applying are available hereApplications and all other materials are due to the OIE no later than January 20, 2015.

The Korean Studies Summer Program is a uniquely different opportunity provided by Seoul Women’s University to foreign students to achieve a better understanding about the various aspects of Korean culture.  Participants learn about Korean life style, historical and religious background, economics, political tension with North Korea, the city of Seoul, art and language.  In exchange for this, a student from Seoul Women’s University studies for one full academic year at Grove City College each year.

Through a four-week intensive program in English during the month of July, participants are matched with a Korean partner, who is an exchange student of SWU. Both lectures and hands-on cultural experiences are provided, with excursions included. The goal is to develop a genuine interest in Korea and a deeper comprehension of Korea’s role today.

Students who are approved for this program receive a scholarship that covers all costs except airfare and spending money, and students receive three credits that transfer back to GCC.  The students receive free housing, meals, cultural events, and excursions.  It is a great opportunity to travel at a very low cost!

Information for this program is available in the Office of International Education early in the spring semester.  Applicants are chosen and notified by mid spring semester for the summer program each year.
