UNC awards $648,234 in study abroad support to 182 Students

The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill has provided $648,234 in scholarships, fellowships and program support to 182 undergraduate students pursuing study abroad programs in Spring, Summer and Fall 2017, and yearlong programs during the 2017-18 academic year. Funded by private gifts to the College of Arts & Sciences, the awards enable students to study in other countries for a semester, summer or year.

Nearly one-third of Carolina undergraduates study outside of the United States before they graduate, one of the highest study abroad rates among U.S. public universities. The Study Abroad Office in the College offers more than 350 programs in 70 countries.

“International experience has a profound influence on the academic and professional paths that students take,” said Bob Miles, associate dean for study abroad. “With the generous support of alumni and friends, we are able to increase access to global opportunities for all of our students at Carolina.”
