This weeks Abroad 101 Student of the Week winner goes to, Kaitlin Morrison. She is a junior at Castleton State College, majoring in global studies with a big interest in history. Kaitlin is a Dean’s List student and has dreams of working for the US Embassy one day! Since she has always lived in a small town, her recent acceptance to study abroad in Rome, through a program offered by International Studies Abroad (ISA), has left her ecstatic about the opportunity to get out in the world and expand her cultural knowledge! She will be spending five months in Rome this upcoming spring semester and is looking forward to enhancing her communication and leadership skills. With this trip being so expensive, Kaitlin has started a fundraising Mission (in addition to the loans she’s already taken out through VSAC) to help pay for some of her expenses.
The Abroad101 Student of the Week initiative awards a student who created a Mission for a study abroad program on GoEnnounce with a donation to their fundraiser. Learn more about this partnership from Abroad101 CEO Mark Shay and GoEnnounce co-founder Melissa Davis here.
We’re making weekly donations to #studyabroad fundraisers! We hope you can help us assist these students in reaching their goals to make their travel dreams a reality. To find out more about studying in Rome, like Kaitlin, visit the Abroad101 program page.
Stay tuned for our next Abroad101 Student of the Week!
