During this monthís three-week Winter Term, 20 WKU faculty are expanding their classrooms and helping WKU students create a unique global learning experience through Faculty-Led Study Abroad (FLSA) with 10 programs spanning four continents.
SAGL awarded a total of $65,000 in World Topper Scholarships to 160 WKU students who are studying abroad in upcoming terms. The World Topper Scholarship is one of a number of scholarships available to WKU students who pursue international experiences.
WKU graduates are successfully landing solid starting positions, thanks, in part, to the knowledge, skills and experience they gained on their undergraduate study abroad programs.
Various offices around WKU as well as external scholarships have collectively given out over $200,000 to students for international study.
A record number of students participated in the Fall 2012 Study Abroad Fair in Mass Media and Technology Hall, which many providers described as one of the best they had attended in recent years.
