Study Abroad Scholarships

GIVING CREATES GLOBAL CITIZENS

Study abroad is the epitome of an applied learning experience, providing students with an opportunity to learn about other cultures and perspectives first hand; cultivating an understanding of our global community. To increase the number of students and diversity abroad, we need you. Your gift makes experiential learning possible. 

WHEN WE SAY EVERYWHERE, WE MEAN IT: 

The UA has hundreds of programs that send students on engaging study abroad trips across the world:
• Students can gain clinical observation experience and course credit in Costa Rica through Global MedCats.

• In Contemporary Cuba: Collective Visions, students examine Cuba’s recent history and current change and continuity.
• And that just scratches the surface!
