Description: The structure and short length of study abroad programs are often an impediment to achieving optimal undergraduate research experiences outside the home country. Frontiers Abroad has met the challenge with innovative programing that embeds the concepts of academic integration and longitudinal learning into its model. Together, these two concepts foster research collaboration between the student and faculty member at both the home and host institutions.
