The Kautz-Uible Economics Institute supports multiple educational trips each year for undergraduate and graduate students.

Each spring, undergraduate students travel to a center of economic activities such as New York City, Chicago, or Washington, D. C., and visit headquarters of major corporations and international organizations, as well as Federal Reserves and Stock Exchanges. All members of the Economics Society are eligible to participate. All expenses are paid for by the Kautz-Uible Economics Institute.

Each summer, graduate students travel to Norway to participate in the Graduate Summer School at the Norwegian School of Economics. The students learn about Environmental and Resource Economics and visit major Norwegian corporations. The Kautz-Uible Economics Institute pays for a substantial portion of the expenses.

Each spring, undergraduate and graduate students participate in the National Association of Business Economists (NABE) annual conference in Washington, D.C. All travel expenses are paid for by the Kautz-Uible Economics Institute.

Each winter, students participate in a study abroad program in India. A substantial portion of the expenses are paid for by the Kautz-Uible Economics Institute. Learn more about the India trip by visiting the students' blog.
