Often, the biggest hurdle UWG students face is the question of how they will pay for their study abroad trip. The simplest way you can help is by contributing directly to the Education Abroad scholarship fund. We encourage you to make an investment in our students’ futures: one small gift from you can be the start of a lifetime of growth for them.

Office of Education Abroad

A life-changing opportunity is just a few clicks away – so take a moment to see what UWG’s Office of Education Abroad can offer you. The OEA facilitates degree program integration for students, scholarship and financial aid counseling, partnership development for faculty, and much more that makes international academic engagement possible on multiple levels.

The OEA also promotes activities and programs designed to increase intercultural understanding – both on-campus and off – as a way to encourage students and the local community to explore the benefits of cultural diversity. Mark Twain once asserted: “Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness…” and that’s as true today as when he wrote it. Studying abroad expands students’ perspectives, sharpens their communication skills, challenges their preconceived notions, and lays the groundwork for becoming responsible global citizens.

Whether you are a student who wants to discover what other countries and cultures have to offer (and what they can teach you about yourself), or if you are faculty looking to design and implement an international curriculum, we’re here to help.
