*************************************
STUDY ABROAD SCHOLARSHIPS

Information regarding study abroad scholarships is also
available on-line at http://www.uga.edu/oie/safinaid.htm

************************
WAIVE YOUR FEES WHILE ABROAD!!!

Please remember that students must waiver their
transportation, health, and other fees when they go in to
register for study abroad classes as part of a UGA faculty-
led program.

Registering for a class coded REGT will NOT automatically
waive these fees, but will ALLOW the student to do so.  If
you do not waive them, you will be charged them.

The technology fee cannot be waived.

If you have any questions about waiving fees for study
abroad, contact the study abroad office or the bursar.

********************
MARK YOUR CALENDARS!!!

The 8th Annual International Street Festival, “Bringing the
World to Athens,” has been rescheduled for:

Friday, April 28 from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. in the Ballroom
of the University of Georgia’s Memorial Hall.

This exciting event should not be missed!!!

*******************
CREDIT APPROVAL REMINDER

If you have not submitted your CAF Form for Summer and Fall
programs, please make sure you do so as soon as possible.

If you have any questions about the CAF form, contact your
advisor or the study abroad office at 706-542-7903.

*******************
VOLUNTEER IN RUSSIA!!!

PROGRAM OVERVIEW
The goal of the U.S.-Russia Volunteer Initiative (USRVI) is
to engage both Russian and American citizens, organizations,
and businesses in cooperative volunteer activities through
short-term bilateral exchanges.

USRVI provides a unique opportunity for young people
interested in promotion of Healthy Lifestyles and/or
Community Development to volunteer for approximately eight
weeks in nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) and/or
governmental service centers throughout Russia and the
United States. Volunteers will be placed with organizations
working to promote Healthy Lifestyles and/or Community
Development.

Those selected will be offered pre-service training and
orientation in Moscow prior to beginning their volunteer
assignments. Immediately after completing their assignments,
volunteers will be invited to a capstone conference in
Washington, D.C. with their counterparts in order to share
their experiences. Volunteers will also have the opportunity
to collaborate with their Russian home/host organizations in
developing follow-on projects after returning home.

Launched in 2004 as a bilateral Presidential Initiative, the
USRVI program has provided 52 young Americans and 60 young
Russians with short-term volunteer internships to share
experience in successful volunteer practices, to address the
needs of communities in Russia and the United States, and to
develop lasting partnerships between Russian and American
youth. Bilateral volunteer efforts have included HIV/AIDS
prevention, improved use of information and communication
technology for marginalized groups, and historic and
cultural preservation. The volunteers were placed at 40
Russian and American host organizations in a wide variety of
geographic locations in each country, contributing 24,000
volunteer hours.

FINANCIAL PROVISIONS OF THE PROGRAM
*       Round-trip travel from volunteer's home city to
their host city;
*       Visa processing;
*       Limited accident and sickness insurance;
*       Housing and monthly living allowance; and
*       Pre-service training, orientation, and capstone
conference.

ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS
Volunteer applicants should:
*       Be available to participate in the program between
late September and late November 2006 (final dates to be
determined).
*       Be available for semi-finalist interviews in mid-
June.
*       Be a US citizen and currently hold a valid, active
international passport.
*       Be between the ages of 20 and 30 at the time of the
application deadline.
*       Be able to receive and maintain a Russian visa.
*       Submit a completed application with all required
documents by the application deadline.

Russian language ability is not required of American
participants, but is strongly encouraged.

STUDY ABROAD LIBRARY

The Study Abroad Office has recently acquired several new
Travel Guides in the Study Abroad Library. These guides are
comprehensive manuals to accommodations, points of interest,
cultural concerns, and many other facts that are important
for those traveling abroad.

The following is a list of the new books:

Lonely Planet Guide: Mexico, Munich & Bavaria, China,
Argentina, Italy, Kyoto, Spain, England, Germany, France,
and Greece

Rough Guide: Japan, Costa Rica

Europe from a Backpack

Also, for those who have not visited the library we have
created a virtual tour to help understand the current layout
of the study abroad library. The tour can be found at:
