PASSPORT TO DISCOVERY: STUDY ABROAD SCHOLARSHIPS TAKE STUDENTS AROUND THE WORLD

MANHATTAN -- China, Turkey, Germany and Peru are just some of the destinations of Kansas State University students who will study abroad during summer or fall 2011 with the help of university scholarships to support international studies.

The scholarships include the International Programs Study Abroad Scholarship, supported by the K-State Student Governing Association, and scholarships endowed by private donors through the Kansas State University Foundation. More information about the K-State study abroad program and international study scholarships is available at http://www.k-state.edu/studyabroad.

"Study abroad is both an academic and a personal journey," said Karli Webster, director of study abroad at K-State. "Participants learn about other cultures and all they have to offer, as well as learning about themselves. I often hear from graduates that they regret not studying abroad while in college; but I have never heard of anyone who has studied abroad regretting the experience."
