Get Involved

Dive into life on campus to meet your fellow classmates and get to know the American way of life. In addition to many internationally focused student organizations, the city of Richmond has a number of cultural organizations that welcome students from around the world.

Trader Fund

Through the Trader Fund, international students have a unique opportunity to attend one cultural event or site per year for partiial reimbursement. Students also have opportunities to attend arts and sports events at little to no cost.

UR Summer Fellowships

Continuing, degree-seeking international students are encouraged to apply for UR Summer Fellowships, which provide financial support for living expenses for an unpaid or minimally paid summer internship or faculty-mentored summer research. International students should read the eligibility criteria to determine if they qualify.
