Meredith Akery's fundraiser for FUND FOR EDUCATION ABROAD

fundraiser

Team FEA is running in the Cherry Blossom 10-mile run, raising money for FEA's study abroad scholarships! Help me reach my goal!

I'm running in the Cherry Blossom 10-mile run to help support students who might not otherwise have the chance to study abroad.

My study abroad experience in Madrid, Spain, shaped my career path and the rest of my life. Stepping outside an insulated community through study abroad gave me independence and strength. Helping US college students study abroad is one way of investing our country's work force and insuring the United States has a chance to compete internationally. Please help the Fund for Education Abroad provide scholarships!

National facts about study abroad:

•Top 4 study abroad destinations are in Western Europe

•Just 22% of study abroad students are minorities, but minorities make up 36% of the student population in higher education

•The majority of study abroad students study abroad for 8 weeks or less.

•Community college students make up less than 3% of the study abroad population

The Fund for Education Abroad (FEA) is a 501(c)3 non-profit dedicated to increasing both the number and diversity of students who study abroad.

Help me support this important cause by donating today!
