Below Tami describes why she loves working to give scholarships to deserving students and why it’s so important. Recently, we announced the winners of a $5,000 CEA Scholarship and a $10,000 scholarship to teach abroad through BridgeAbroad. Read more from Tami below and if you haven’t had the chance to watch the videos of the winners hearing the news, watch them below!
The day when we gave the good news to the winners was, by far, my favorite day at Abroad101! Being able to announce the exciting news was not only SO much fun, but it made me really recognize how thoughtful and deserving these students are to be given such a wonderful opportunity to study and teach abroad with the financial support of our awesome partners like CEA and BridgeAbroad. It really made me take a step back and realize how much I want to keep expanding international education opportunities to those who are devoted to becoming engaged, global participants through such rewarding experiences, and that Abroad101′s mission and values have allowed me to do just that!
Who loves this video as much as I do?
