Dive with International Field Studies

International Field Studies, Inc. (IFS) is an educational and scientific non-profit organization established to promote and assist educators with field study programs. Established in 1970, IFS grew out of the increasing teacher interest in implementing field study experiences for their students with minimal organizational difficulty and expense. In response to this interest, IFS began by supporting field studies throughout the United States with administrative assistance, financial coordination, group insurance coverage, and transportation. At the time of its incorporation, IFS’s goals were outlined as follows:

“To provide opportunities for students to learn about their environment, in all disciplines, through direct field study experiences; to provide the structure for developing an intensive field study program with competent leadership; to promote educational and scientific activities through direct field experiences; to cooperate with school systems so students may receive academic credit for field studies.”

A trip to Forfar Field Station with IFS is life-changing. I had the pleasure of joining an educational excursion in 2017 for one week. The quality and quantity of education and adventure I received from enthusiastic staff members was outstanding. The experience was organized, breathtaking, educational, and a lot of fun. I look forward to returning one day! Thanks IFS for an amazing experience that I won't soon forget!


I've been associated with IFS and Forfar Field Station for over 35 years, as both a student and an educator. It has been an amazing experience from both sides! I have had the incredible opportunity to now share this experience with both of my daughters, who are completely in love with Forfar and have participated in our Ocean & Island Discovery Camp on multiple occasions. If you are even thinking of attending a program offered at Forfar, GO FOR IT! It will be the best decision of your life!


This will be my 16th year booking our Marine Bio class field experience with IFS at Forfar Field Station. Our students and parents are always impressed with the level of learning that happens, and as teachers, we are always excited to return to this beautiful island full of adventures for our class. Thanks for all the positive experiences you've provided to our 30+ year program!
