Students Seek Study Adventures at Study Abroad Fair

KNOXVILLE — If you could spend a semester, a summer — or even longer — studying anywhere in the world, where would you go? Students can hear more about opportunities that may be on their horizons at the campus’ Study Abroad Fair from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 26, in the Carolyn P. Brown Memorial University Center Ballroom.

The event provides a one-stop shop for students to learn about the process of applying, the wide variety of programs and financial aid.

Sponsored by UT’s Programs Abroad Office, the fair will include semester, academic year, summer, and mini-term travel opportunities. Students also can talk to other students who have already studied abroad, as well as with faculty who will be leading summer and mini-term programs abroad.

Approximately 850 UT Knoxville students study abroad each year in all corners of the globe. For many students, these experiences are only possible due to assistance from financial aid programs and scholarships. UT Knoxville students pay a $10 annual fee that helps fund $300,000 in study abroad scholarships each year. The UT Parents Association International Scholarships also provide assistance to students who wish to study, intern or volunteer abroad.

Study abroad is a key element of UT Knoxville’s Ready for the World program. The goal of the initiative is to transform the campus into a culture of diversity that best prepares students for working and competing in the 21st century.
