Turning Study Abroad Into a Reality for Underrepresented Students
Study Elsewhere aims to develop global programs that are inclusive and cater to historically underrepresented communities. It is our mission to make education abroad accessible and to provide support, scholarships, and more for our students throughout their meaningful travel experience.
Our university partnership with Veritas University in San Jose, Costa Rica gives students the opportunity to take academic courses for college credit. This ensures no graduation delays and allows financial aid to be used to offset costs.
The semester or summer program includes an intensive Spanish course along with 2-3 electives needed to fulfill graduation requirements.
Study Elsewhere supports students from start to finish. Our academic support team provides one-on-one assistance throughout the duration of the program and beyond.
Each activity we curate combines cultural integration, personal growth, language learning, and developing knowledge on global issues.
Here are a few ways our organization supports students before, during, and after the Study Elsewhere program is complete.
