Supported Programs

The International Study Award is open to eligible students participating in summer experiences abroad that fall into one of the following categories:

TOC: ISA-Supported Experience Categories

Date: Individual program deadlines vary! It is extremely important that students submit all materials by their respective deadlines. While the final deadline to apply for ISA is May 1st, most program application components are due much earlier in the spring semester. CIPE cannot grant an ISA to any student who has not completed all program application components by their respective deadlines. 

Students are responsible for meeting all applicable program and ISA deadlines.

Yale Summer Session Programs Abroad 

All Yale Summer Session Programs Abroad are eligible for ISA funding. Students must complete applications for both their desired program and the International Study Award to receive an ISA stipend.

Note: Students using an ISA to participate in Yale Summer Session Programs Abroad that begin in New Haven will be eligible for free on-campus housing and meal plan for that period.

Yale in London

Yale in London summer courses are eligible for ISA funding. Students must complete applications for both their desired program and the International Study Award to receive an ISA stipend.

Approved Non-Yale Summer Abroad Programs

Students electing to participate in Non-Yale Summer Abroad programs can select from a list of programs designated as eligible for Yale transfer credit or petition for approval with Yale Study Abroad. All students participating in Non-Yale Summer Abroad programs must apply directly to their program for admission, to Yale Study Abroad for credit approval, and to the International Study Award to receive a stipend.

ISAs can be used to support two sessions of a Non-Yale Summer Abroad program, provided the program meets all of the following criteria:

  • The sessions are for the same program in the same location and occur back-to-back.
  • The total duration of the combined sessions is at least 8 weeks with a minimum of 4 weeks per session (with the exception of LSE - see below).
  • The sessions are approved by Yale Study Abroad for 1 transfer credit per session (for a maximum of 2 transfer credits).

Note: Note that students participating in the London School of Economics' Summer School must enroll in two back-to-back 3-week sessions and complete each course by earning a final grade in order to use ISA funding. The ISA cannot be used to fund a single 3-week session or courses that are not completed for a grade.
