Studying abroad can be a life-changing experience. We know that institutions of higher education and corporate recruiters see the value in how these opportunities enhance teamwork and cultural competency skills. A study abroad experience is one of the most dynamic ways to make a student’s résumé stand out as they look to gain experience in their field of study and as they enter the workforce.
INSIGHT Into Diversity is committed to improving educational equity for all students, but especially those from underrepresented backgrounds who may not traditionally be afforded the ability or opportunity to participate in a study abroad program. Underrepresented students include racial/ethnic minorities, gender, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, first-generation college students, students with disabilities, and non-traditional students.
To assist in this effort, we are awarding a $2,000 scholarship to five individual students currently enrolled in a baccalaureate-granting institution, graduate school, or health profession school.
