OTS: Organization for Tropical Studies (Duke University) is a program provider offering 8 abroad programs. Programs offered include Study Abroad and Graduate Program abroad programs in 2 countries such as Costa Rica and South Africa.

The Organization for Tropical Studies (OTS) is a non-profit consortium that has grown to include 63 universities and research institutions from the United States, Latin America and Australia. In the early 1960's, scientists from U.S. universities forged working relationships with colleagues at the Universidad de Costa Rica in the interest of strengthening education and research in tropical biology. Intense interest both in the U.S. and Costa Rica led to the founding of OTS in 1963. OTS was founded to provide leadership in education, research and the responsible use of natural resources in the tropics. To address this mission, OTS conducts graduate and undergraduate education, facilitates research, participates in tropical forest conservation, and conducts environmental education programs in Costa Rica and South Africa.
