Student International Travel Policy

Berea College enjoys its ability to provide some support for its students who study or serve in international locations. The College permits the use of funds for student international travel to support one trip of any kind (credit or noncredit) per student during the student’s years at the College. Proposals for travel will be evaluated in a competitive process and will be subject to available funds. No funding will be provided for independent studies, team-initiated studies, or internships in international settings. No institutional funding or fundraising will be provided for performance groups beyond that available through restricted endowed accounts held by academic departments.

Each student who plans to travel internationally as a student of Berea College (regardless of the type of international travel experience) must complete the “International Travel Form,” which students can obtain from the Center for International Education.
