Athens, Ga. – The University of Georgia will hold a spring Study Abroad Fair Jan. 14 from noon-5 p.m. in the Tate Student Center in the hallway between the atrium and the east lounge.
Students interested in studying abroad in the summer of 2015 will have the chance to explore multiple program options and learn about scholarship opportunities. More than 30 UGA faculty-led study abroad programs will represent a variety of academic fields and locations.
Organized by the Office of International Education, the fair is an opportunity for students to meet with study abroad advisers, university fellowships advisers, representatives from the Office of Student Financial Aid, faculty who lead summer and spring break programs, and UGA Exchange programs.
“This event is a fantastic opportunity for students to make last minute decisions to join a program abroad,” said Yana Cornish, director of education abroad in UGA’s Office of International Education. “I am thankful to UGA faculty and staff for taking part in the fair and spreading the word about outstanding international opportunities UGA has to offer.”
In 2014, 2,344 UGA students studied abroad, placing UGA 17th among all U.S. institutions in the 2014 Open Doors report. The five top destination countries in that year were Italy, United Kingdom, Costa Rica, France and Spain.
