This week on the SISA (Students Interested in Study Abroad)
Listserv you will find some useful information for those who
are planning to go abroad, those who are currently abroad,
and those who have returned!

*************************************************************

EXCHANGE PROGRAM DEADLINES:

If you are interested in participating in a UGA exchange
program during the Spring 2005 semester, applications are
due to the Office of International Education on September
15, 2004.

Exchange programs are an ideal option for students who wish
to spend a semester or academic year abroad and immerse
themselves in student culture in another country.  The
University of Georgia exchange partnerships enable UGA
students to enroll as visiting students at a partner
university and earn transfer credit for their academic work.

Exchanges also represent one of the most affordable ways to
spend a semester abroad.  UGA participants pay in-state
tuition and fees to the Office of International Education
and pay for housing and meals on site. In addition, HOPE,
other scholarships and other financial aid can
usually be applied to the cost of exchange programs.

*************************************************************

ATTENTION FALL 2004 STUDY ABROAD STUDENTS:

Let your voice be heard while oversees!!! Here are some
great ways to make your vote count in the upcoming elections.

1. http://www.overseasvote2004.com
If you have internet access and a printer, this is by far
the least confusing, quickest way to fill in the request
forms for an absentee ballot.

2. Political Parties Abroad
Both Democrats Abroad (http://www.democratsabroad.org) and
RepublicansAbroad (http://www.republicansabroad.org) can
provide the paperwork andassistance in filling in the
forms.  They each register voters regardless of party
affiliation.

3. The Federal Voter Assistance Program
http://www.fvap.gov
The FVAP site provides all the necessary forms for download
along with state by state instructions.
The FVAP also maintains toll-free numbers in many countries
which connect to their office in Virginia.

You may be asking, “Where can I send my ballot if I do not
have a fixed address?”  Here’s the answer, send it to either
the International Students’ Office to your host university
or to your study abroad program office overseas.
