Inaugural Virtual Study Abroad Fair Prepares U.S. Students for Global Workforce

Washington, DC: February 23, 2015

 On February 25, the U.S. Department of State, in partnership with the Institute of International Education (IIE) and CollegeWeekLive, will host a virtual study abroad fair for U.S. high school and university students to learn more about the benefits of study abroad, program options, potential host countries, and funding opportunities.

Students who study abroad, learn a new language, and immerse themselves in a different culture gain critical skills necessary to collaborate across borders and become competitive in the global workforce.

Students will be able to chat live with over 50 university representatives and other exhibitors from 13 different countries, including representatives from the U.S. Department of State.

They will learn about study abroad programs, internships abroad, and service learning opportunities. Video presentations will discuss the value of study abroad for professional development and guide students on how to choose and finance an exchange program, prepare for the experience, and apply for scholarships.

Those students interested in the program can register here: http://www.collegeweeklive.com/sign-up/study-abroad-day-feb-2015?refcode=SPO_GLOBAL_STUDYABROAD_Website_FEB15.
