 Global Research at INSA Toulouse "GRIT" (since 2012):

  • 8 week-summer exchange program "GRIT" that allows US students the opportunity of doing research with INSA Toulouse institution, its laboratories and partner companies in an international environment.
  • US students are matched to laboratories and companies (such as Airbus, Aerospace Valley) depending on their skills and interests.
  • US students benefit from 2 weeks of cultural discovery (French language courses in small group and cultural tours).


INSA Toulouse runs all the technical aspects of both programs: welcome reception, booking of cultural visits, transport, classrooms, equipment and housing.


Both programs give academic credits to the US students and are very appreciated by students in terms of academic and personal enrichment.
