Study Abroad Fair to be held Jan. 31

The University of Maine International Programs’ Study Abroad Fair will be held 11 a.m.–2 p.m. Jan. 31 in the first-floor ballroom of Estabrooke Hall.

The free event is held to inform UMaine students, faculty and staff about the programs available for all majors to study, intern, research or teach abroad.

Information will be available on UMaine’s direct exchange and recommended programs, which are offered in the summer, by semester or throughout the academic year, as well as scholarships and financial aid.

Attendees will be able to speak with several people including program provider agents, campus program representatives, UMaine students who have studied abroad, students currently visiting on exchange from partner universities, study abroad peer advisers and study abroad office staff.

Some study abroad representatives also will be tabling in the first floor of the Memorial Union 11:30 a.m.–1 p.m. Jan. 30, and in the atrium of Donald P. Corbett Business Building 9–11:30 a.m. Feb. 1.

Faculty interested in teaching abroad can attend a workshop at 3 p.m. Jan. 30 in the FFA Room of the Memorial Union. University Studies Abroad Consortium (USAC) representative Rochelle Seymour will provide information about teaching abroad through the organization, which is the most popular study abroad provider at UMaine.
