Project reports and dissemination
Recipients of study abroad enhancement grants are required to complete a brief online learning assessment within one month of completing their project and to share their findings with the campus community, preferably during International Symposium or the Student Research Symposium.
Projects involving research with local people should be approved by the Beloit College Institutional Review Board. Please see guidelines here.
