National level scholarships:

Congratulations to Wendy Cohen '13 (Spanish/Latin American studies) for receiving a Fulbright English Teaching Assistantship to Mexico for the 2013-14 academic year.

Congratulations to Christopher Hoffman who was awarded a Bridging-Japan Scholarship for his study abroad experience at Kanzawa University in Japan for the academic year 2013-14.

In addition to the above scholarship opportunities the New Paltz Global Scholars Program makes study abroad even more affordable at New Paltz partner institutions in Australia, Ireland, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom.

Study abroad and graduate on time!

Institutional data indicates that New Paltz students who study abroad are more likely to graduate in four years than students who don't student study abroad, which disproves the myth that study abroad delays graduation. New Paltz data are in line with national trends on study abroad and graduation rates.

Study abroad creates job opportunities!

Research shows that study abroad can give recent graduates a competitive edge in a difficult job market. Kyle Conway '12 (French/psychology) secured a study abroad advisor position at Northern Arizona University just weeks after graduation.  Kyle studied abroad in France as an undergraduate and worked in the Study Abroad Office as a peer counselor.
