Policy regarding University-issued International Insurance for Research Abroad

Graduate Students: The Global Programs & Strategy Alliance Office recently informed departments that graduate students must purchase University-issued international insurance, with coverage by Cultural Insurance Services International (CISI) or receive a waiver from the GPS Alliance in order to conduct University activities (research, attending conferences, etc) abroad. In order to be in compliance with this policy, the department will require proof of insurance or approval of a waiver for those who are doing research abroad prior to approving/releasing research or travel funds, grpp, or other funding.

If you are traveling internationally please contact GPS Alliance to find out what is required. Please note that receiving a waiver / insurance will take additional time if traveling to a country on the State Department Traveling Warning list. In order to be in compliance with this policy the department will require proof of insurance or approval of a waiver for those who are doing research abroad prior to approving/ releasing research or travel funds, grpp, or other funding. For more information on the University policy please see: http://global.umn.edu/travel/insurance/outgoing.html
