Each semester the Education Abroad department organizes an education abroad fair for students. This is an opportunity for students to learn about UNL departments’ programs in other countries, countries they can study abroad in, and also the costs of study abroad. We were invited to staff at booth at the Education Abroad Fair last Tuesday to help students learn about how they can make a plan to save and budget for their study abroad experience, and also how to save money while studying abroad. We had our Study Abroad Checklist with money saving tips and our Study Abroad Budget sheet available for students. If you’d like one of these handouts, please stop by room 237 in the City Union to pick one up! Don’t forget, if you need help planning for study abroad expenses, you can always make an appointment with us at https://unlsmmc.youcanbook.me/
We personally feel that each student should have the opportunity to study abroad if they want to. For most students, it is a once-in-a-lifetime experience to study and live abroad. Let us help you figure out how to pay for it. Here’s the Education Abroad Office’s website: http://educationabroad.unl.edu/ Check out the “Financial” tab at the top for information on financial aid and scholarships for study abroad programs.
If your department is putting on an event or an information fair, think about if money is related to the topic in any way. If it is, we can definitely create some custom handouts for your students. Just contact us at (402) 472-9093 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information!
