Help With Study Abroad Research!

I am a graduate student at the institute of Higher Education here at UGA and am researching trends around study abroad. I am particularly interested in why some students choose to study abroad and why others do not.

I hope to interview students who come from first-generation, low-income, or racially diverse backgrounds. If you are someone who fits this description and you'd like to do a quick interview with me, or you have friends who fit this description who you think would be interested, please let me know! The interviews should be no longer than 30 min and I hope to conduct them in early April. If you'd like more information before you commit to an interview, just let me know and I'd be happy to talk more!

IIE is pleased to announce, in partnership with The New York Times in Education, the 2016 Generation Study Abroad Voices Challenge. By hearing and seeing study abroad alumni articulate the value of their study abroad experience, we hope to inspire Generation Z and others to seek out an international experience as part of their college education. Study abroad returnees are encouraged to submit digital story submissions between 0:30 seconds and 2 minutes long that demonstrate how study abroad gave them an edge, the impact it had on their personal or professional life and the world, and how The New York Times content helped them navigate, enhance or make sense of their experience. Winners will receive a $1,000 cash prize, an iPad, a trip to the IIE Summit on Generation Study Abroad in Washington, D.C. and a video spotlight on The New York Times in Education website. Winners will also be recognized as a Generation Study Abroad Voice.
