Why have you decided to study abroad?

(Yes, it may be a graduation requirement, but how will you make the most of it?)

Brainstorm reasoning for persuasive content in your personal statement:

  • Learn more about a certain culture, region, or country
  • Improve your foreign language skills
  • Gain a different perspective on the world, America and yourself
  • Enhance graduate school and job applications
  • Build new life skills, including:
    • Self-confidence
    • Independence
    • Patience
    • Adaptability
    • Cross-cultural communications skills
  • Make friends from around the world
  • Have a transformative experience and an exciting adventure 
  • What other ideas do you have??

These factors will help you choose a program that best suits your needs while improving your scholarship essay!
