Study Abroad Scholarship Opportunities
The Institute of International Education (IIE) has now made available
applications for several study abroad scholarships, some of which can be
used in any country and others that are restricted to business studies or
certain countries. The application deadline for programs during summer
2000-spring 2001 is March 31, 2000. In general, students who receive the
scholarship have tended to be enrolled in longer duration, high-immersion
programs, direct enrollment programs in non-English-speaking countries, or
facilitated direct enrollment programs that provide significant cultural
immersion. For more scholarship details, see

Student Quotes - From a student in London, England
I'm here in Central London, and I'm loving it. I've already mastered the
"tube," and after that, everything's a breeze. Even though the language is
the same, the culture is dramatically different from our own. I'm trying
my best to immerse myself as much as possible into the English culture to
better my experiences here.
