Team FEA is running in the Cherry Blossom 10-mile run, raising money for FEA's study abroad scholarships! Please 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.
Study abroad and living abroad changed my life. It definitely shaped the person I am today, and led me to pursue a career in international education. I am very passionate about encouraging everybody to go abroad, and wish that more people had the opportunities that I had. I believe strongly in the mission of the Fund for Education Abroad, which is committed to increasing diversity of students who go abroad.
Having never run in any kind of race before, this 10 miler feels like a real (exciting) challenge. There is no other cause that I'm more excited about training for and contributing to than FEA.
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.
