Mongolia: Geopolitics and the Environment

As a student on this program, you will look at the interplay between nomadic traditions, foreign engagement, economic development, and natural resource utilization in the context of Mongolia, a nation facing rapid economic and environmental change. You will scrutinize the multiple ways in which mining, conservation of pasturelands, grazing rights, and other resource management issues are shaping public and private life. For one to two weeks, you will live among nomadic herding communities and experience some of the most pristine natural environments in the world. Please see website for more information This year, SIT will award over $1.5 million in scholarships and grants.
