Exploration Seminars

Exploration Seminars are on-campus seminar courses that incorporate a faculty-led international travel component, which takes place during the course.

Call for Proposals for Funding for Exploration Seminars

The Princeton Institute for International and Regional Studies (PIIRS), in cooperation with the Office of International Programs (OIP), is now accepting proposals for funding for Exploration Seminars for the Fall 2019 and Spring 2020 semesters.

Exploration Seminars incorporate faculty-led international travel during fall and spring breaks in regular on-campus seminar courses.

Please submit proposals for fall break 2019 travel by June 1, and spring break 2020 travel by October 1 to Yolanda Sullivan.

Proposals should consist of:

  • a syllabus;
  • travel component rationale (1-2 pages);
  • statement of experience in country and proposed local partner (1 page);
  • sample itinerary;
  • draft budget (in consultation with PIIRS).

Faculty from every division — natural sciences, engineering, social sciences, humanities and the arts — are encouraged to submit proposals.

Please direct questions to PIIRS director Stephen Kotkin.
