Italy study abroad opportunity for one UT Tyler student!

     Italy is one of the most popular countries in all of Europe. There is a strong fascination with the culture, language and especially the food. Who wouldn't love to eat the authentic pastas made fresh along with delicious gelato! One lucky student will get the opportunity to visit Italy! The University of Texas at Tyler is offering the opportunity for one student to study abroad for a semester at St. John International University in Italy!

     The student that is chosen after applying will get a scholarship for $9,000 for that semester. The student will have to get an additional $5,000 to cover room and board for the semester. The program will consist of a 16 week program.

     You should definitely apply!

     How many chances in your lifetime will you get the opportunity where a university offers that much money to help fund your trip! Usually the scholarships tend to pay a quarter of your expenses, but this scholarship helps fund over half of your studies! Don't miss out on chances like these!

      Studying abroad opens many doors for you during and after your college career. Employers look for something that will make candidates stand out during the hiring process. Taking courses abroad gives you a cultural uniqueness as you've been surrounded by a different culture for a few months. This gives you a new outlook and perspective when it comes to your thought process and even how you treat others. When you immerse yourself in a different culture, you get the opportunity to learn new things that differ from your own customs and  beliefs. This in turn is applied to your daily life and you change accordingly. You may even speak a little Italian when you get back!

     If you would like more information, feel free to contact the Office of International Programs at or you can call at 903-565-0062!

It's like you read my mind! You seem to know a lot about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you can do with some pics to drive the message home a little bit, but instead of that, this is fantastic blog. A great read. I will definitely be back.
