Media Arts and Studies Student Awarded $5,000 ISA Diversity Scholarship

The University of Kentucky Education Abroad (UK EA) Diversity Scholarship Committee awarded Elias Conwell its $5,000 Diversity Scholarship for the fall 2015. UK EA and partner organization International Studies Abroad (ISA) collaborate to award this scholarship to UK students each semester.
 
“This scholarship reaches out to a population which is traditionally underrepresented in education abroad,” said Yiyi Tang, UK EA financial manager.
 

Language Immersion Programs

Education Abroad is an ideal way to learn or become more comfortable with a foreign language. To truly be immersed in the language UK EA generally recommends sesmester-length or academic year programs. Some summer programs may be applicable but are generally too short for a true language immersion experience.
