Study Abroad Alumni Fundraising

Studying abroad is the single most compelling and educational experience for college students. The Honors College is helping to fulfill the mission of FIU to create globally aware and sensitive citizens by offering intensive study abroad programs on three continents. Our goal is to enable every Honors student to have this great opportunity. But most of our students can't afford to do this. Help us help the many deserving students who could benefit from our Worlds Ahead research-oriented programs in other countries.
