If you’ve ever dreamed of studying abroad, the #GoStudyAbroad Contest, sponsored by Go Overseas and the Institute for International Education (IIE), can help make it possible! Now through March 31, you can enter to win a $10,000 scholarship to fund your international study.
#GoStudyAbroad is part of Generation Study Abroad, an IIE-led initiative to double the number of American students who study abroad by the end of the decade. With 1 in 5 jobs linked to international trade and employers looking for global talent, more U.S. students must study abroad to broaden their perspectives, understand and tolerate different ways of life and succeed in today’s global workforce.
IIE also calls on anyone who studied abroad to pay it forward by nominating U.S. college students to #GoStudyAbroad by the time they graduate. Nominees could win a $10,000 scholarship for study abroad, and nominators are eligible to win travel prizes.
Higher education institutions, study abroad organizations, government agencies and others are encouraged to participate in this nationwide campaign. Please join us in mobilizing study abroad alumni, faculty members and wider campus communities to nominate students to #GoStudyAbroad.
