What are you doing with your summer?

Really, what are you doing with your summer? Sure, you could work at a "coffee and copies" internship or eternally binge shows on Netflix. But why not spend your summer abroad, earning UK credit, getting ahead in your major and making unforgettable memories? 

UK Education Abroad offers several faculty-led summer programs, and their deadlines are quickly approaching. Many of these deadlines are on March 1st. 

International Service Learning

What is service-learning?

Service-learning is defined as an integrative experience through which learners engage in thoughtfully organized service in response to a community identified need.  Experiences are designed to be a mutually-beneficial exchange of knowledge and resources accomplished by service and reflection.  Learning outcomes promote academic and civic engagement and are focused on holistic learner development and community well-being.  Service-learning can be credit bearing or non-credit bearing.

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.
