Service Learning Experience


The Ohio State India Engineering and Education Service-Learning Experience is designed to introduce students to the history, culture and society of India. The 11 day program (including travel days) includes field trips to sites of historical and cultural importance, a tour of the hospital and fabrication facility of Jaipur Foot, and a volunteer opportunity with the Orphanage at the Delhi Council for Child Welfare. The program will be held in northern cities of India: Agra, Jaipur and Delhi. These cities are popular with tourists because of their art, culture, trade and learning.

Students are required to enroll in one credit of Engineering 4692.01S (Service-Learning in Engineering) during the Spring 2014 semester. Engineering 4692.01S will meet Spring Semester 2014 on Mondays from 5:20pm-6:15pm in Scott Lab E0245.  Students will earn an additional three credits of Engineering 4692.01S in-country. Professors Lisa Abrams and Olga Stavridis from the Ohio State College of Engineering will accompany the group and serve as the resident directors.

Students are responsible for paying The Ohio State University tuition plus a $2,800 program fee. The program fee includes international airfare, visa, accommodations, in-country transportation, excursions and entry fees, most meals, and supplemental insurance. It does not cover some meals (lunches) or personal expenses. The actual cost for Ohio State to run this program is $3,800 per student; this cost is subsidized by the Office of International Affairs in the amount of $1,000 (subject to change).

Passports are required for every Ohio State study abroad program.
