Overall Experience
This experience was 110% worth it to me. It was really interesting to be in a group of people all passionate about learning the same thing, and the program also encouraged us to explore our own related interests through the research project, meaning I got to expand what I learned about even beyond the curriculum of the program. ... - University of Pittsburgh - Pittsburgh View Entire Review

A student studying abroad with SIT: Akureyri - Renewable Energy, Technology, and Resource Economics - Summer
This experience was definitely worth while. I learned a lot about hydroelectric and geothermal systems as well as the type of policy that needs to be considered in order to make renewable energy viable in a country. - Carleton College View Entire Review


With untapped reserves of enough geothermal and hydroelectric energy, Iceland is the perfect place to learn about renewable energy sources and sustainability. You’ll meet with multiple stakeholders connected with the renewable energy sector for a multifaceted view of the country’s energy policy and learn about the latest renewable energy technologies. You’ll also be immersed in Icelandic culture and language and discover Iceland’s untamed landscape from Akureyri, an energy–progressive city at the base of a fjord.

The SIT Study Abroad scholarship application process has been fully integrated into our online program application. After ticking the scholarship box in the program application, please complete the following steps: 1) Once your scholarship application is started, you will be asked to provide SIT with the name and email address of a financial aid counselor at your home institution, or the general email address of your financial aid office. This is very important as it allows SIT to consider any financial aid that may be available from your home institution when reviewing your scholarship application. 2) Add SIT’s school code (008860) to your FAFSA form. 3) Your scholarship application is complete and ready for review when SIT has your FAFSA and the financial aid information from your home institution. Confirm receipt of all required financial aid information with the SIT Study Abroad Scholarship Office ( or 802.258.3503). 4) If you do not receive an award decision notification from SIT before the billing due date, please know that your scholarship application was not complete.
