After wrapping up our Summer 2022 offerings, we are excited to be planning for Mongolia Field School Summer 2023. Please check back in the fall for more detailed information on course offerings, course dates and application deadlines. We will hold information sessions in the winter and spring to offer an overview of the summer courses. Likely offerings include:
All Field School courses begin in Ulaanbaatar with a general orientation related to Mongolian culture as well as a specific orientation to the course topic. Participants will meet with their instructors and classmates from Mongolia and around the world and begin their learning journey. Class groups will then travel to selected sites across Mongolia where they will gain an understanding of the topics studied in the context of the landscapes and people in the regions visited. All participants will have the opportunity to see important sites in Mongolia, while also gaining the unique insights offered by their course leaders and the local people and officials encountered during the field studies.
Program tuition covers the costs of the academic instruction, in-country travel during the course, most meals, and accommodations (with the exception that Mongolian participants will not be provided with lodging in Ulaanbaatar). Participants are responsible for making their own travel arrangements to and from Ulaanbaatar and should budget for incidental expenses during their stay in Mongolia. A significant number of scholarships are available, with awards based on merit, diversity, and need. Fellowships are available due to the generous support of the Henry Luce Foundation and other donors.
Applications for MFS 2023 will be accepted in Spring 2023. Stay tuned for an announcement of specific deadlines later this fall.
