Now that you have a solidified program idea and have done some preliminary research, it’s time to formally develop your program. This section is designed to help you understand the proposal and budget process. The Education Abroad office is here to walk you through each step
Faculty-Led Proposal Phase I
Complete the Phase I form outlining the academic rationale for your program. Present it to your Department Chair and Dean for review and approval. Submit final document and approval to the Education Abroad office.
Faculty-Led Proposal Phase II
Complete the Phase II form outlining program and travel logistics. Submit the final document to the Education Abroad office for approval by Risk Management and RIT Global.
Use this budget template to help you estimate program costs. Once you’ve done some research, you’ll bring this to a meeting with Education Abroad to build the total program budget as well as the student budget.
