Are you a study, intern or volunteer abroad alumni that has a passion for the abroad experience? Do you want to motivate other students to take advantage of the same opportunity you had? Then the Diversity Abroad Campus Fellows Program may be for you! The Diversity Abroad Campus Fellows Programs gives study abroad alumni (intern and volunteer abroad too!) the opportunity to motivate their peers on campus to pursue global opportunities. By hosting information sessions, speaking about their personal experiences and sharing Diversity Abroad resources, Campus Fellows will do their part to help Diversity Abroad increase the number of diverse students going abroad.
International study and intern programs aren’t just a fun and exciting adventure. The experience has real life, tangible benefits that are personal, academic and professional. But for years, students of ethnic and racial minority backgrounds, first-generation college students, and students from lower socio-economic backgrounds have made up only a small percentage of students taking advantage of global opportunities. We’re here to change that and you can help through the Diversity Abroad Campus Fellow program. Students don’t always understand how feasible, affordable and transformative studying abroad can be. Although many students can be discouraged by the study abroad process, it can be much easier to understand how to make it possible through the support and guidance of their peers, like you, who were in a similar position not long ago.
The goals of the Diversity Abroad Campus Fellows Program are to empower you to utilize your international experiences in a professional, creative, and engaging way; get new students excited about international opportunities and Diversity Abroad through peer-to-peer connections; and manage the Diversity Abroad brand on your campus and in your community.
