EEE Study Abroad Opportunities
Considering studying abroad? EEE encourages students interested in international learning experiences abroad to consider traveling to one of the locations listed below for which EEE is specifically developing study abroad programs. These preplanned programs will identify course substitutions* and make it easier for students to plan a semester abroad, either fall or spring, during the junior year.
Check out the current list of course options; additions being made frequently.
To encourage participation, EEE will provide a $1000 scholarship to the first 6 students to apply and be accepted to study at one of these institutions. See additional funding opportunities below.
Learn more about studying abroad on the ‘Getting Started’ Purdue Study Abroad page at www.studyabroad.purdue.edu/GettingStarted/.
