Sponsored outbound international travel from the United States, including study abroad and fellowships, is suspended for Yale College students for the duration of the spring 2021 term. This decision is final and will not change even if circumstances should change in the destination country. Starting with summer 2021, sponsored travel for Yale College students will be governed by the Yale College Travel Policy, but should public health concerns require, further restrictions may be imposed at any time.


Yale students have a free subscription to the Daily Chatter, a great resource for keeping up with global news presented from a non-partisan perspective.

  • Eligible students may use the SEA for their choice of an internship, research experience or arts apprenticeship in the U.S. or abroad.
  • If the experience is in the U.S., the award will be $4,000. If the experience is outside the U.S., the award will be $6,000.
