Funding Resources for Undergraduate Students
The Program in International and Comparative Studies (PICS) supports University of Michigan undergraduate students who study, intern, or conduct research abroad.
- Only international studies concentrators and minors are eligible to apply for these funding opportunities. The one exception to this rule is the Arctic Internship program, which is open to undergraduates in any discipline.
- Graduating students and alumni are not eligible. You must be a continuing student with at least one remaining term of enrollment beyond the term in which your program abroad occurs.
Year Round Funding Opportunities
- Study Abroad Funding
For international studies concentrators and minors at the University of Michigan who will be participating in a formal, for credit, U-M sponsored and organized, study abroad program during the academic year or summer.
Summer Funding Opportunities
- Arctic Internships
For undergraduates from any concentration seeking summer internship in the Arctic region. Details on available internships are also posted.
- International Internships
For international studies concentrators and minors planning summer internships overseas, and who already have an internship assignment secured from a suitable organization. Visit the U-M International Center in the Michigan Union for internship opportunities, advice, or inspiration.
- International Research Fellowships
For international studies concentrators and minors to conduct innovative, self-designed research outside of the United States.
