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 raise money for scholarships for students who might otherwise not have the chance to study abroad. Studying abroad in Japan and Bangladesh was an eye-opening experience that hugely influenced my college studies, future careers, and outlook on life. FEA focuses on giving scholarships to students with financial need who are underrepresented in study abroad and are going to a non-traditional destination. Please help make it possible for other students to also have these kinds of amazing experiences!

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.
