University of Texas study abroad program pays $10,000 for first-year grads

The University of Southern California has a $10K scholarship for first year undergraduates interested in a study abroad job.

The scholarship was announced Friday by the UT’s Office of Student Engagement, which said that the program pays for the first-time grads to travel to places like France and Germany, and offers them the chance to work with students at their own universities.

“We are excited to partner with UT to bring these young scholars to work in our classrooms, to help them realize their full potential, and to learn in the most exciting part of the world,” said UT President Bill Powers.

“Our students deserve to see the world through a unique lens and we’re excited to be able to offer them this opportunity.”

The scholarship comes after the UT Board of Regents approved a $500,000 scholarship for students interested in studying abroad in 2018.
