International Opportunities for Students

Course-Embedded Travel


Course-embedded travel allows you to study for a semester as well as travel for 7-14 days, both under the guidance of your expert faculty. These 200- or 300-level courses have international perspective which is bolstered by traveling to a particular site, either in the U.S. or abroad, during a period of academic recess.

Contact Lynn Stafford for more information regarding Course-Embedded Travel.

Lan-Chang Fellowship

The purpose and spirit of the Lan-Chang Fellowships — in memory of Chien-Wei Lan and Sing-Chen Chang — is to promote cultural understanding of mainland China through students undertaking projects in China and the sharing of these project experiences upon their return to the Grinnell College campus.

This opportunity is temporarily suspended for summer 2020. 

Contact Susie Duke with questions or current Grinnell students may learn more about the Lan-Chang fellowship (login required).

Mentored Advanced Projects (MAPs)

Certain students pursuing a Mentored Advanced Project (MAP) can apply for funds to conduct research at an international location.


Through the Center for Careers, Life, and Service, students can apply for internships and search for post-graduate job and internship opportunities in international locations.
