Study abroad receives record-high scholarship applications

The Study Abroad Office saw a record number of scholarship applications funded by the International Education Fee during summer 2014, according to university officials.

The Study Abroad Office is often able to award every student who applies for the International Education Fee Scholarship during the fall and spring semesters, said Isis De La O, assistant director of the Study Abroad Program. Generally, fewer students choose to study abroad during fall or spring semesters due to the longer length of the programs during these semesters. More than 500 applications were submitted.

The number of applicants has increased due to the addition of more study abroad programs, increased emphasis on programs as well as recruiting and more funding, De la O said.
