Learn about Study Abroad trips at info session

The Roman Colosseum is one of many world-famous stops travelers will make during Seminole State's 2014 Study Abroad trips.

Seminole State College of Florida’s Center for Global Engagement will host an information session for students, employees and community members who are considering traveling with Seminole State on any of the five upcoming Study Abroad trips for 2014.

The session will be held Thursday, Nov. 14, in the Sanford/Lake Mary Campus Multipurpose Room (building C, room 110). It will start at 12:30 p.m. and run approximately one hour.

The Center is sponsoring five faculty-led trips this academic year – two during Spring Break and three immediately following the Spring Term in May. Each trip runs between seven and 10 days.  

The trips, open to Seminole State students and staff as well as interested community members, will take travelers to Central America, South America, the Mediterranean and Central Europe.

Information discussed at the session will include:

  • The procedure for obtaining a visa, a passport and any other documentation necessary for international travel.
  • Grant funding and scholarships available. This year, for the first time, Seminole State is offering more than $30,000 in Study Abroad scholarships for current students, in addition to the grants and awards available from outside sources.
  • Details about the upcoming Seminole State-sponsored trips, including itineraries, costs, payment plans and more.
  • Other travel opportunities.

“There are a lot of great opportunities available to travel and study abroad,” says Kevin Konecny, director of the Center for Global Engagement. “You just have to take those opportunities, and make sure you’re informed when you do.”
