Leaders with Lamar University (LU) scheduled its Study Abroad Fair for today, Oct. 11, using the opportunity to tell students the opportunities as well as benefits that they could experience from studying abroad.
The fair was held on the Brooks-Shivers Dining Hall lawn from 11 a.m. through 1 p.m.
As part of the event, faculty members provided information about faculty-led programs that are open to students at LU. In addition, students who have already studied abroad in the past attended the event to encourage other students with their experiences and stories.
Fortunately, there are several grants, scholarships and fellowships that students can use to study abroad. These include the Creative Cardinal Scholarship, the Study Abroad FEE Grant, the Gilman Scholarship, the Generation Study Abroad Scholarship and others. The event gave students the opportunity to learn more about study abroad funding.
During the 2016-17 school year, LU has planned 20 different faculty-led programs as well as five semester exchange opportunities. These are open to students at every level.
The LU Study Abroad office has ongoing study abroad arrangements based in England, Spain, France, Ireland, Japan and China. The office also has ongoing searches to expand its study abroad programs.
