Did you know that the U.S. Department of State offers scholarships for high school students to study abroad? Tune in to one of two State Department Google+ Hangouts to get advice and ask questions about international education and exchange programs.
The first Google+ Hangout, Thursday, May 22 at 3:15 p.m. EDT, is tailored to educators, including counselors and those with an interest in assisting students who may apply to study abroad. The second Hangout, Thursday, May 29 at 3:15 p.m. EDT, will help middle school and high school students learn what to expect from the study abroad experience. Both sessions will include educators and students who have benefitted from the study abroad scholarships.
Both events will be broadcast live from exchanges.state.gov/highschool. Questions can be submitted in advance via Facebook and Twitter using #GoAbroadWebinar and by tweeting at @ECAatState.
