Study Abroad with EHS

WHY STUDY ABROAD/AWAY?

Learn, develop and exercise the following skills:
• Communication
• Coping
• Broad and strategic thinking
• Cross-Cultural competencies
• Global mindedness
• Flexibility and adaptability
• Tolerance and open-mindedness
• Patience and perseverance
• Ability to view situations from unique perspectives
• Independence and self-reliance
• Leadership
• Inquisitiveness and assertiveness

HOW CAN I AFFORD STUDY ABROAD/AWAY?

Because study abroad opportunities are academic experiences that will contribute to the students’ degree requirements, students may use their financial awards to help cover the costs of tuition and associated expenses. While it is possible that a study abroad experience may not cost any more than living on campus, all students are encouraged to contact a staff member in the One Stop for Student Success Services (CAB Building) to discuss options available for your program. Students must file a FAFSA to be eligible to federal financial aid. We encourage students to apply for study abroad/away scholarships at Finances and Scholarships.

CAN I FIT STUDY ABROAD INTO MY ACADEMIC PLAN?

Yes. It will require planning so let your advisor(s) know of your interest right away.
