THE GRADUATE SCHOOL
- Services & Support
Northwestern University cares about its students, particularly when traveling internationally for university-sponsored activities. In order to provide the best service, all graduate and professional students are required to register their travel with the Office of Global Safety and Security (OGSS).
OGSS provides comprehensive guidance and resources for all kinds of emergencies abroad and travel requirements for graduate students – including the International Travel Registry .
International Travel Registry
Students planning international university-affiliated travel (e.g., conference attendance, research, field studies, performance, competition) are required to register their international travel in Northwestern’s International Travel Registry . The travel registry provides travelers with important health and safety resources prior to departure and allows Northwestern to communicate with travelers while abroad.
Register Your INTERNATIONAL Travel
**Domestic and personal travel does not need to be registered with OGSS. Students who are fully funded by external scholarships and who will not receive any Northwestern financial support (such as a fellowship or grant, stipend top-off, or supplement) during their time abroad are not required but are encouraged to register their travel. Learn more here .
Students traveling internationally should review the information posted on the Office of Global Safety and Security’s website , including:
- Advice for travelers with pre-existing health conditions
- Enrollment link for GeoBlue health insurance coverage [required] during travel
- Information related to sexual misconduct abroad
- Specific resources for optimal travel health, safety, and security
- Emergency messages and alerts for travelers
- Security information resources to register for travel security alerts
DEPARTMENT OF PHILOSOPHY
- Program Overview
Travel Funding Support
The availability of funding for graduate student travel related to conference participation and summer school program attendance is determined on a year-by-year basis, according to budgetary considerations.
The most recent policies regarding travel funding, which pertain to Academic Year 2023-24, can be found here.
Current Philosophy graduate students who wish to apply for travel funding support can do so by clicking the following link to the Travel Funding Request Form:
TRAVEL Funding REQUEST FORM
Before any travel, you must review University policy.
The Office for Global Safety and Security (OGSS) has specific rules for travelling graduate students here: https://www.northwestern.edu/global-safety-security/travel-policies/graduate-students/index.html
All eligible graduate and professional students traveling internationally for University purposes must enroll in GeoBlue , the University’s Global Health Insurance program. They also must adhere to the following requirements:
- Register their trip with OGSS through the Northwestern Travel Registry , regardless of destination. Exceptions apply for travel to one’s home country. Proof of registry may be required for reimbursement or travel reconciliation upon return.
- Follow other relevant graduate student travel policies .
This information is for undergraduate students who are thinking about applying or who have been awarded grants from Northwestern and whose projects include international travel.
To minimize health and safety risks, the University links approval of undergraduate international travel to U.S. Department of State (DOS) Travel Advisories . If you are considering a trip abroad for undergraduate research, first read the Travel Advisory for your destination. If your destination is located on Northwestern’s “restricted travel” list (see Undergraduate International Travel Policy ), then you must seek approval from Northwestern before your funding can be released. Contact NU’s Office of Global Safety and Security (OGSS) in the early planning stages of your trip to discuss your formal request for travel permission.
FOR URG APPLICANTS
Supplemental Travel Funds for Summer Undergraduate Research Grants (Summer URGs) and Academic Year Undergraduate Research Grants (AY URGs) ONLY:
- If you plan to travel internationally to conduct your project, you will receive half the cost of your airfare in addition to the $4000 of a SURG or $1000 of an AYURG.
- This extra travel money for your flight must be requested in your application, not after the grant is awarded to you. This timing is important because the review committee needs to know up front how many students are requesting travel money.
- To request travel funds when you apply, include a budget listing the anticipated cost of your roundtrip international airfare as an appendix to your proposal. You will be eligible to receive up to 50% of the cost of the flight (on top of the regular grant amount). This supplement cannot be used by students travelling to their home country.
FOR ULG RECIPIENTS
If you are interested in transferring any academic credit for your summer language study to Northwestern, you will need to complete the NU Study Abroad application . If you have questions about whether your program qualifies for Northwestern credit, please contact the Learning Abroad Office.
If your NU Study Abroad application is approved and you confirm your intent to study abroad for academic credit, you must complete all study abroad pre-departure requirements before your grant funding can be released. When you have completed these requirements you will be sent a confirmation email, which you must then forward to the ULG coordinator: [email protected]
If you do not intend to apply for academic credit for your intensive summer language study, you still need to complete the four health and safety pre-departure requirements listed on the Office of Global Safety and Security website (see below). You will not receive your grant money until you upload a confirmation from the Office of Global Safety and Security confirming that you have completed all steps to the SOAP system .
FOR GRANT RECIPIENTS
All grant recipients whose plans include international travel (unless you are traveling to your home country) are required to complete Northwestern’s health and safety pre-departure requirements , which included enrollment in Northwestern’s International Travel Registry. When you have completed all requirements, you have the option within the Registry to obtain a PDF “receipt.” Upload this form to the SOAP system.
- Your grant cannot be processed and paid to you until you complete all the health and safety pre-departure requirements, which for most students include enrolling in Northwestern’s GeoBlue for Students plan and the U.S. Department of State’s Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP).
- Grants can only be paid on the last day of the month, and it requires that an early-month payroll deadline is met. The earlier that you complete the pre-departure requirements, the quicker we can start processing your payroll paperwork, so that you can receive your funding. Check the Info for Grant Winners page for exact dates.
- Your Travel Registry must be complete at least two weeks before your departure, or your grant could be revoked.
Don’t hesitate to contact the Director of the Office of Undergraduate Research .

Studying law abroad can be a valuable addition to a law student’s legal education. With the increasing globalization of business, society and the legal profession, even students who plan to practice law only in the U.S. can expect to encounter both international legal questions and international clients. The Law School’s study abroad opportunities allow students to develop the cross-cultural competence needed to navigate this changing legal field. Immersion in a foreign legal culture provides students not only with an understanding of different legal systems, but also exposes them to cultural and linguistic contexts unique to each nation. This multi-faceted and flexible understanding of international law helps to prepare students to network, negotiate, and collaborate across multiple jurisdictions and provides personal and professional opportunities not otherwise available at Northwestern. International and comparative study also serves to broaden a student’s perspective on our own legal system as they analyze law in contrast.
Study Abroad Options
Northwestern Law students may participate in summer study abroad programs, semester study abroad exchanges, or our dual-degree programs. A list of summer study abroad programs can be found on the ABA’s website . Because these programs have been reviewed and approved by the ABA, credits earned in most of them are eligible for credit toward your Northwestern Law degree, provided they are pre-approved. Information about our semester study abroad options is detailed below. If you are interested in the dual-degree programs , note that the application process and steps pre and post-departure will be the same as those for the semester-long exchanges.
Semester Study Abroad
In this section:
Law School Rules Governing Exchanges
The Law School has amended Article III, Section 3.01 (d)(2) to include new language which reads in relevant part:
Work in excess of six semester hours taken in other schools...may be counted toward the Law Degree only in the following cases...(iii) as part of an exchange program with the law faculty of a foreign university that has been approved by the Dean after consultation with the Faculty Advisory Committee. The Dean or the Dean's designate may promulgate regulations specifying application procedures and selection criteria for participation in any such program, and shall have discretion to accept or reject the application of a student for reasons of the general welfare of the Law School. The Law School reserves the right to discontinue any program or add new programs for reasons of the general well fare of the Law School.
The Law School has negotiated exchange relationships with law faculties abroad. Under these agreements, the foreign schools will send some of their students to Northwestern for a semester, and we will be permitted to send some of our students to their schools in exchange. Our current exchange partners are:

Students participating in an exchange program will pay their full tuition to the Law School and will be billed as if they were attending a semester here. Students who apply for financial aid through Northwestern will be eligible for all financial aid awards or loans that you would have been eligible to receive if you were attending school here. Students receiving a grant, will receive it in the normal amount. All housing, travel, insurance and book expenses are the responsibility of the participating students. There will be additional fees at host schools such as student activities fees and other incidentals that students will also be responsible for paying.
Students are not eligible to use VA benefits while studying abroad.
For questions or additional information, contact the Chicago Office of Financial Aid by e-mail .

Media Contact for Advisory: Thanksgiving Holiday Travel
Jacquelyn goddard, director of communications, massdot.
Boston — The Massachusetts Department of Transportation (MassDOT), MBTA, Massport, and State Police are encouraging members of the public to plan for travel during the upcoming Thanksgiving Holiday period, use available technology tools and resources to make informed decisions, travel on public transportation is possible, and if driving, drive sober and hands-free. During this holiday season, individuals should leave extra time for trips and check the forecast for the routes being taken.
The Massachusetts Department of Transportation Highway Division is taking several steps to ensure safe and efficient travel on state-owned roadways. There will be no scheduled construction work on major arterial roadways outside of established work zones, starting at 5:00 a.m. on Tuesday, November 21, through 5:00 a.m. on Monday, November 27.
In addition, the High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) lane on I-93 between Boston and Quincy will extend its afternoon hours by opening from 2:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, November 21, and from 1:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday, November 22. The HOV lane will be closed on Thursday, November 23, and on Friday, November 24. Also, due to increased travel in and out of Logan Airport in Boston, the Sumner Tunnel swing lane will not be deployed on Thursday, November 23, nor on Friday, November 24.
MassDOT will keep the Sumner Tunnel open for use the weekends of November 17 and November 24. The next Sumner Tunnel weekend closure will be the weekend of December 1.
MassDOT reminds drivers to obey all traffic laws, including traveling at or below the posted speed limit, driving sober, driving hands-free, and devoting full attention to what is ahead on the road. MassDOT encourages travelers to make an extra effort to be courteous on the roads and report any reckless driving to law enforcement officials.
In an effort to improve services for customers heading to and from Logan Airport for holiday travel plans, additional MBTA Silver Line 1 (SL1) service to and from Logan will be added from Saturday, November 18, through Sunday, November 26, (excluding Thanksgiving Day), with headway improvements every day. Riders are reminded that the Silver Line is free from Logan Airport to Boston destinations.
Additionally, on Thanksgiving Day, November 23, MBTA customers should note that no ferry service will operate, all Commuter Rail lines will operate a weekend schedule, and all other modes will operate on a Sunday schedule. The CharlieCard Store is also closed on November 23. Riders are also reminded that the $10 Commuter Rail Weekend Pass is also available for Thanksgiving Day with more information available at mbta.com . For information about MBTA schedules, please visit www.mbta.com/holidays .
The public is reminded that Thursday, November 23, is a state holiday and all Registry of Motor Vehicle offices and state offices will be closed. On Friday, November 24, customer service centers will reopen by appointment for permit, license, and ID transactions and same day walk-in services for required in-person registration-related transactions. Meanwhile, AAA members may visit any AAA location by appointment for some Registry transactions and more than 40 Registry transactions can be done online at www.Mass.Gov/RMV .
Massport is expecting an increase in passengers at Boston Logan International Airport in the days ahead and suggests passengers allow extra time to get to Logan and through security. Extra staff will be on hand to help passengers and families who may not have traveled recently. Massport continues to recommend passengers arrive two hours early for domestic flights and three hours early for international. There is also ongoing construction at the airport and Massport is advising passengers to please drive carefully and follow any detour signs.
Massport is urging passengers to use public transportation, rather than their own personal vehicles, to get to and from Logan, such as the MBTA Blue and Silver Line and Logan Express service from Braintree, Framingham, Woburn, Peabody, and Back Bay. For those taking Logan Express, Massport recommends passengers be dropped off at the sites as parking may be limited.
Passengers can now download the free FlyLogan app to access information about the airport, flight status, purchase Logan Express tickets, reserve parking, order food for pick up, among other services.
Massport also encourages passengers to check the TSA.gov website for a full list of items that can and cannot be taken onboard, including holiday food items.
For more information about Logan Airport, please visit www.massport.com/logan-airport/ .
For information on traffic conditions travelers are encouraged to:
- Download the Mass511 mobile app or visit www.mass511.com to view live cameras, travel times, real-time traffic conditions, and project information before setting out on the road. Users can subscribe to receive text and email alerts for traffic conditions.
- Dial 511 and select a route to hear real-time conditions.
- Follow @MassDOT on X, (formerly known as Twitter), to receive regular updates on road and traffic conditions.
MassDOT, Massport , the MBTA, and State Police wish all members of the public a safe and enjoyable holiday.

Touring the Top 10 Moscow Metro Stations
By Claudia Looi 2 Comments
Komsomolskaya metro station looks like a museum. It has vaulted ceilings and baroque decor.
Hidden underground, in the heart of Moscow, are historical and architectural treasures of Russia. These are Soviet-era creations – the metro stations of Moscow.
Our guide Maria introduced these elaborate metro stations as “the palaces for the people.” Built between 1937 and 1955, each station holds its own history and stories. Stalin had the idea of building beautiful underground spaces that the masses could enjoy. They would look like museums, art centers, concert halls, palaces and churches. Each would have a different theme. None would be alike.
The two-hour private tour was with a former Intourist tour guide named Maria. Maria lived in Moscow all her life and through the communist era of 60s to 90s. She has been a tour guide for more than 30 years. Being in her 60s, she moved rather quickly for her age. We traveled and crammed with Maria and other Muscovites on the metro to visit 10 different metro stations.

To Maria, every street, metro and building told a story. I couldn’t keep up with her stories. I don’t remember most of what she said because I was just thrilled being in Moscow. Added to that, she spilled out so many Russian words and names, which to one who can’t read Cyrillic, sounded so foreign and could be easily forgotten.
The metro tour was the first part of our all day tour of Moscow with Maria. Here are the stations we visited:
1. Komsomolskaya Metro Station is the most beautiful of them all. Painted yellow and decorated with chandeliers, gold leaves and semi precious stones, the station looks like a stately museum. And possibly decorated like a palace. I saw Komsomolskaya first, before the rest of the stations upon arrival in Moscow by train from St. Petersburg.
2. Revolution Square Metro Station (Ploshchad Revolyutsii) has marble arches and 72 bronze sculptures designed by Alexey Dushkin. The marble arches are flanked by the bronze sculptures. If you look closely you will see passersby touching the bronze dog's nose. Legend has it that good luck comes to those who touch the dog's nose.

3. Arbatskaya Metro Station served as a shelter during the Soviet-era. It is one of the largest and the deepest metro stations in Moscow.

4. Biblioteka Imeni Lenina Metro Station was built in 1935 and named after the Russian State Library. It is located near the library and has a big mosaic portrait of Lenin and yellow ceramic tiles on the track walls.

5. Kievskaya Metro Station was one of the first to be completed in Moscow. Named after the capital city of Ukraine by Kiev-born, Nikita Khruschev, Stalin's successor.

6. Novoslobodskaya Metro Station was built in 1952. It has 32 stained glass murals with brass borders.

7. Kurskaya Metro Station was one of the first few to be built in Moscow in 1938. It has ceiling panels and artwork showing Soviet leadership, Soviet lifestyle and political power. It has a dome with patriotic slogans decorated with red stars representing the Soviet's World War II Hall of Fame. Kurskaya Metro Station is a must-visit station in Moscow.

8. Mayakovskaya Metro Station built in 1938. It was named after Russian poet Vladmir Mayakovsky. This is one of the most beautiful metro stations in the world with 34 mosaics painted by Alexander Deyneka.

9. Belorusskaya Metro Station is named after the people of Belarus. In the picture below, there are statues of 3 members of the Partisan Resistance in Belarus during World War II. The statues were sculpted by Sergei Orlov, S. Rabinovich and I. Slonim.
10. Teatralnaya Metro Station (Theatre Metro Station) is located near the Bolshoi Theatre.

An excellent read! Thanks for much for sharing the Russian metro system with us. We're heading to Moscow in April and exploring the metro stations were on our list and after reading your post, I'm even more excited to go visit them. Thanks again 🙂
