International Fellowships

RIT students and alumni with excellent academic records should consider applying for a competitive RIT Study Abroad Fellowship or Scholarship. There are a number of independent scholarships or fellowships available for study, travel, or research abroad. Scholarships (generally for undergraduates) and Fellowships (generally for graduate students or recent graduates) can turn the dream of living abroad into a reality.

RIT Work Abroad

RIT Work Abroad helps students who’d like to broaden their horizons — but are also looking for an internship, co-op, or fellowship — accomplish both. Working abroad is a great way to experience a different culture, gain work experience in your field of study. As well as work for outstanding companies and organizations. You will get a different perspective on how to live and work, plus you will learn different ways of approaching and solving problems in the workplace. All while making meaningful professional connections worldwide.
