About International Field Studies

Most educators agree, immersion experiences are among the most lasting, meaningful types of education. Since our founding in 1970, we stand by our mission: “International Field Studies is a non-profit organization providing environmental education, scientific research, and cultural awareness through experiential learning. International Field Studies, Inc. (IFS) is an educational and scientific non-profit organization established to promote and assist educators with field study programs.
