We encourage all honors students to study abroad if at all possible. With a wide range of options, scholarship support, and dedicated advisors, the Office of Study Abroad is a great place to start your investigations. Whether you want to study abroad for a semester or for a period of a few weeks, you have great choices for developing your career as a world citizen!
Presidential Scholars are expected to design an "honors experience" that is approved prior to their participation. One potential experience that we encourage students to consider is participation in a study abroad program. We encourage not only the Presidential Scholars to participate in study abroad, but all honors students to consider it as part of their holistic growth. Students typically return reporting that they cannot decide what they have learned more about - the culture of the society they have visited, or themselves!
If you have questions, please feel free to contact us and we will be happy to go over any study abroad idea and help you fit it into your career as an Honors student at EIU.
The Sandra and Jack Pine Honors College may have funds available to help students defray the expenses of studying abroad. We have helped Honors students study all over the world!
