Summer 2023 Programs
After a successful launch last summer, Syracuse Abroad will once again offer its multi-city, customizable summer program with courses and internships in Florence and London. This mix and match summer session allows students to choose the length, location(s) and courses of their program to best fit academic needs, interests and schedule. Students can spend anywhere from one to seven weeks in either or both locations, with an option to take culturally enriching courses or participate in an internship. In addition to academic programming, center activities in each location may include city tours, food tastings and day trips to neighboring cities.
Summer sessions will also take place in Madrid and Strasbourg, with a multitude of courses and programs offered in each location to satisfy any student’s interest.
In Madrid, students will spend five weeks taking one or two courses, living with a host family or in a local residence hall. Courses include Drugs and Human Behavior (PSY 315), Sexuality in Spain (SOC/QSX/WGS 306/600), The Business of Sports (BUA 300.2) and more.
In Strasbourg, students will live with a French host family and take one or two courses including French for Diplomacy (FRE 300), Engineering Research projects (ECS/MAE 490/690), Internships (FRE/IPA/PSC 470/670) and Religion, Law and Human Rights in a Comparative Perspective (IRP/MES/PSC 400.1/600.1).
In addition to programs at Syracuse centers, students can participate in a variety of faculty-led programs and internships. Explore the post-apartheid educational system in South Africa, the Mount Everest Base Camp in Nepal or policy studies in the Middle East. Internships will be offered in nine locations including Singapore, Tel Aviv, Brussels and many others. View all summer 2023 programs.

Need-based Financial Aid
The Office of Financial Aid awards Study Abroad Grants (SAG) to undergraduate students, based on financial need, that range from $250-$2,000 for three credits and $500-$4,000 for six credits. Need is determined by the previous academic year’s Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) information and is available for all summer programs. Once accepted into a summer program, students will automatically be considered for these grants and alerted by the Office of Financial Aid if a grant has been awarded.
Additional need-based grants of up to $3,000 are available for Syracuse University undergraduate students who attend a summer program at a Syracuse Abroad Center: Florence, London, Madrid or Strasbourg.
