Tufts University has been offering study abroad programs for five decades. You may also choose from hundreds of approved programs run by non-Tufts providers. Get started!

Tisch College is excited to announce the inaugural year of the Tisch Summer Fellows Program at the Bodhi School in rural India.

Fellows will work as teaching assistants at the school, which provides high-quality, English-medium education to children from impoverished backgrounds. They will help teachers prepare lesson plans, teach parts of the curriculum, assist and supervise students, and develop a unique project that reflects each Fellow's interests and skills.

This will be a challenging but rewarding experience in which Fellows will live and work in very modest accommodations in a rural setting. All expenses, including travel, housing, and meals, will be provided.
