About

Engage with questions of citizenship, sovereignty, and borders in Spain’s Basque country, Catalonia, and Ireland.

As Europe battles internal tensions in a new geopolitical context characterized by contested borders and rearranging alliances, the question about the future of Europe and the European Union is relevant and urgent. This program revisits Europe’s founding ideals of liberty, inclusion, and social justice within the context of rising independence movements, as well as xenophobic policies against immigrants, refugees, and minority groups, engaging questions around competing visions of what constitutes the Union.


Spain and Ireland are ideal sites to interrogate the inclusive potential of the nation-state, the promise of economic prosperity in consolidating EU integration, and the capacity of democratic participation in carving a space for Europe’s refugees and minority groups. Through an interdisciplinary approach, you will better understand processes that have produced profound changes in Spain, Ireland, and Europe’s social, political, cultural, and economic structures.

Guidelines/Requirements:
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 (studyabroad.scholarships@sit.edu 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.
