Honors students travel across the globe, eager to explore new lands, learn about other cultures, and make friends with students from around the world. Read on to hear how numerous Honors students have stepped out of their comfort zones, stretched their global awareness, and fueled wider personal ambitions through study abroad/ away programs.

Regardless of your reason for choosing a study away program, you will have a life-changing experience. Your world will expand, and your perspective about yourself in that world will never be the the same.

We can help you find those opportunities, and we offer scholarships and stipends which may help you afford those opportunities as well.
