Study Abroad Scholarship
What is Study Abroad
Students who study abroad experience the world and create networks that will enhance their future career prospects and global problem solving skills. As ambassadors for our university, state, and country, they define American values, fight stereotypes and challenge their own perspectives. Whatever the students’ future career goals, skills developed by study abroad make students more competitive in the job market and can help them become the leaders of the future.
There are a wide range of faculty-led short trips and semester or academic year study abroad opportunities available as part of Arkansas Tech University’s Study Abroad program. Approximately five short-term faculty -led study abroad trips are offered every year. Below is a sample of exciting trips that we offered in recent years:
- Costa Rica- Corporate Social Responsibility and Sustainability in Costa Rica
- England- History of Healthcare in England
- Germany- 500 year Anniversary of Luther’s Reformation in Germany
- Ireland- History of Terrorism in Ireland
- Italy- Trumpet Ensemble Performances at the Orvieto Musica Trumpet Festival, Italy
- Mexico- Mexican Civilization and Culture
- Spain- Language Immersion in Salamanca, Spain
Why does Study Abroad need scholarships
Almost 70% of students at ATU receive some form of financial aid. Economic barriers often prevent students from participating in this program. The Study Abroad Scholarship is a need based scholarship awarded to undergraduate students participating in study abroad for academic credit at Arkansas Tech University, and can provide up to $1,000. This program allows excellent students with financial need to take advantage of these opportunities and maximize their potential.
We need your help
Our goal is to be able to offer this opportunity for years to come, but we need your help to fully endow the Study Abroad Scholarship. Be a part; help us reach our goal of raising $500,000,so we can continue to provide scholarships for many more deserving students.
