Vacation Study Abroad.
Howard, Edrice Marguerite, Ed.
This directory of vacation study-abroad programs provides brief descriptions of the programs offered by institutions around the world. An introductory section describes the organization of the listings (which provide program sponsor and name, location, dates, subjects, credit, eligibility, instruction, highlights, costs, housing, deadline, and contact). A section on planning for study abroad discusses: researching the options (language proficiency, geographic location, the third world, disabled students, and adult learners); educational choices (types of programs, sponsorship by consortia, direct enrollment, vacation study programs, internships, and voluntary service projects); finances (scholarships and work abroad); travel and living (laws and customs; accommodations; passports, visas and vaccinations; medical insurance and other health concerns; and transportation); and programs administered by the Institute of International Education (IIE). Program listings are divided into the following categories: worldwide; Africa, south of the Sahara; Asia and Oceania; Europe; Middle East and North Africa; and the Western Hemisphere. Two appendices provide a list of consortia and a summary of the U.S. study-abroad census. Two indexes, by sponsoring institution and by field of study, conclude the book. (KM)
