Introducing D-Lab Study Abroad

Published on D-Lab website: Sept 7, 2011 by Victor Grau Serrat

We are excited to announce D-Lab Study Abroad, a new collaboration between D-Lab and the Global Education Office that will give you the chance to spend a semester living, working and learning in a developing country while earning MIT credit!

Beginning in Spring 2012, students will be able to spend a semester abroad in India, Nicaragua or Zambia, with a small group of MIT students, working with a long-standing (and amazing!) D-Lab partner. This is a unique MIT study abroad program, as it will be a blend of classroom and field experiences, with deep community engagement. The D-Lab Study Abroad program will give students and partners the opportunity to have a semester-long collaboration, which will lead to stronger connections in the community, significant progress on research and community development projects, and a more in-depth cultural immersion. The program is a great opportunity for students interested in international development to gain more field experience, while still receiving MIT credit and completing academically rigorous courses.
