TROY - Troy University is launching a new program to support its students who wish to study abroad.
The program, the Chancellor's Award for Global Competitiveness, will make available a significant number of $750 scholarships this year for eligible TROY students participating in Troy University-approved study abroad programs. The scholarships will be funded, in part, from the University's Car Tag Scholarship Program.
"Studying abroad can be a life-changing experience for our students," said Dr. Jack Hawkins, Jr., Chancellor. “Today's world requires a broader understanding of people from other cultures and with understanding comes appreciation. One of our goals as Alabama's International University is to prepare our students to be competitive in the global marketplace, and study abroad opportunities are a wonderful part of that process."
Troy University students have taken part in study abroad programs in such countries as China, Cuba, Costa Rica, England, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Israel, Sweden and many more.
Eligibility requirements and application information will be made available on the University's website at http://trojan.troy.edu/internationalprograms/troyabroad. Additional information is available through the TROY Abroad Office at 334-808-6128 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
