International Affairs encourages our students to enrich their academic program through experiential learning. The Off-Campus Experience (OCE) major requirement is intended to foster community engagement, practical applications of academic coursework, and professional development through internship, study abroad, or other experiential learning opportunities. Additionally, students enrolled in the IAFS Honors Program may elect to conduct human subject research or access a specialized research database as part of their thesis research. International Affairs majors receive SEED awards typically between $150-$300, based on merit or need, in order to support the Off-Campus Experience or Honors Program thesis research. Additional awards may be available for students participating in IAFS Global Seminars or other pre-approved Off-Campus Experiences (OCE).
The following IAFS majors are eligible for a SEED award:
- You are enrolled in the IAFS 4930: Internship in International Affairs class
- You are enrolled in the IAFS 4800: Honors in International Affairs class
Eligible students will be contacted with application information. In general, applications open in November (Fall), March (Spring) and July (Summer).
