Education Abroad News
Four Ohio State students shared their education abroad story as part of the 2017 Celebration of Students Recognition program. College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences Buckeyes Ryan Miller, Hillary Kordecki, Natalie Miller and Gage Smith tell their story about learning around the world.
Ohio State has partnered with Brazilian Experience to offer a semester of cultural immersion in Curitiba, Brazil at the Federal University of Paraná (UFPR). The city of Curitiba (population almost 2 million) is the capital of the state of Paraná, the largest city in the southern part of the country, and it is a "sister city" of Columbus, Ohio.
The program will start on January 23, 2018 and end on June 29, 2018 and will fulfill the GE requirement in foreign language in one semester. Students will take three intensive Portuguese courses plus two culture courses taught in English for a total of 18 credit hours.
Established in 2016 by the Office of International Affairs in collaboration with the Office of Diversity and Inclusion, the OH-IO Education Abroad Scholarship supports underrepresented and diverse student access to Ohio State education abroad programs. The inaugural scholarship competition resulted in 11 first and second year students from the Young Scholars Program being selected to receive a $2,000 scholarship to apply toward an Ohio State education abroad program of their choice.
