Why Study Abroad? – Travel Bloggers Summit

IMG_1705-1

 

Have you ever studied abroad? I am excited to continue the MAGIC with the 3rd Travel Bloggers Summit on Study Abroad and Global Citizenship this week in NYC (formerly White House Travel Bloggers Summit on Study Abroad and Global Citizenship). My first 2 experiences with this summit took me to The White House in 2014, Turkey in 2015 and now New York in 2017. The summit, sponsored by HI New York and Partners of the Americas, shares initiatives and new strategies for American students to study, volunteer, and work abroad, including scholarships and exchange programs. #studyabroadbecause

WHY STUDY ABROAD?

Did you know that one in three current world leaders have been on an exchange program in the United States?

Studying abroad is a critical component to deepening and broadening relationships with citizens overseas. Today, fewer than 10% of U.S. students take part in study abroad.

Today’s global economy demands students have more than just a degree when they graduate from college, but also the cultural and language skills to be effective.
