Opportunities abound at study abroad fair

The University of Iowa Office for Study Abroad will hold its annual study abroad fair from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., Tuesday, Sept. 13, on the second floor of University Capitol Centre.

This event is free and open to the public. All students are invited to attend to learn about international education opportunities.

More than 100 program representatives will be in attendance, including representatives from external institutions in Israel, Australia, and Italy. Office for Study Abroad staff, along with peer assistants and program directors, will be available to answer questions, and student returnees will share their study abroad experiences. Students can visit the financial aid table to speak with advisors about scholarships and other available funding for international study.

This year’s fair will feature opportunities to work, intern, and volunteer abroad, a new area of emphasis within the Office for Study Abroad.

The University’s goal is for 30 percent of all undergraduates to have a study abroad experience. Last year, one in every five UI undergraduate students studied abroad.
