Before submitting an Independent Study Application, please read thoroughly the Independent Studies Guidelines. We also recommend giving your intended faculty sponsor the Faculty Info Sheet for more information about being a (G)ISP/AI sponsor.
Proposals for GISPs, ISPs, and AIs must be submitted using the Independent Study Application.
Send the following to Independent_Study@brown.edu:
- The completed Independent Study Application saved as a .docx or .doc file with an abbreviated title as the file name.
- The Faculty Sponsor Statement.
- If a co-sponsor is not a member of Brown faculty, they should complete the Instructor Sponsor Statement.
- If this is a language Independent Study, complete the Language IS Supplement.
- If this is an Academic Internship, complete the AI Supplement. AIs are during the academic year only.
- If students will be taking any field trips, each student must submit the Request for Release and Waiver
For a sample GISP application, check out the Infographics GISP for Fall 2012. To see previously approved GISPs, visit the Past GISPs Database.
Every student participant in a GISP is expected to contribute to the course syllabus. For this reason, no student may enroll in a GISP after its proposal has been approved.
