The biggest factor in deciding when and where to study abroad is often the financial aspect. Many students assume they cannot afford to participate, missing out on an invaluable opportunity because they are not aware of alternative methods of funding. The International Programs Financial Assistance Coordinator is dedicated to helping students through the financial aid application process by conducting workshops on a regular basis and meeting personally with each student needing assistance. FSU students can also find additional helpful information on the FSU Financial Aid website.

FSU International Programs Teaching Appointment

The TA is responsible for teaching a single section of ARH 2000 – Art, Architecture, and Artistic Vision for the full twelve-week summer session. Airfare, housing, and a stipend of $4,000 are provided. Doctoral students in good standing should express their interest in this position to the department chair by September 15 in the form of a brief paragraph that details teaching qualifications, prior travel experience, and how the opportunity will help advance their research.
