The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill has provided $915,675 in scholarships, fellowships and program support to 198 students pursuing study abroad programs in Spring, Summer and Fall 2016, and yearlong programs during the 2016-17 academic year. Funded by private gifts to the College of Arts and Sciences, the awards enable students to study in other countries for a semester, summer or year.

Nearly one-third of UNC undergraduates study outside of the United States before they graduate, one of the highest study abroad rates among U.S. public universities. The Study Abroad Office in the College offers more than 325 programs in more than 70 countries.

“We’re committed to providing study abroad opportunities that match the needs of our diverse student body,” said Bob Miles, associate dean for study abroad. “Private gifts are one essential way that we are able to expand access to these important global learning opportunities.”
