Nearly 40 students spending spring semester away on four continents
Thirty-nine Salve Regina students, representing nearly every major and minor at the University, are spending the spring 2018 semester studying abroad at program locations spanning four continents and 11 countries.
“This spring we have students studying in Austria, Australia, China, England, France, Ireland, Italy, Scotland, South Africa, Spain and Thailand,” said Erin FitzGerald, director of the Office of International Programs.
England and Ireland have attracted the largest number of students, but a new development this year has been four students heading to a new partner institution in Scotland, the University of Aberdeen. This spring also marks the arrival of the first two exchange students from Aberdeen, who will study at Salve Regina this semester.
Nine students received study abroad scholarships of varying amounts through competitions administered by the Office of International Programs and the University. They are:
- Brandon McKay International Studies Scholarship: Charleson Pernell (Seville, Spain) and Lexington Gretzky (London, England)
- Jane Campbell Scholarship: Catherine Kareores (Lyon, France) and Bianca Lennon (Seville, Spain)
- Donaldson Trust Scholarship: Izabella Da Silva (Seville, Spain), Bianca Lennon (Seville, Spain) and Mallorie Geiger (Seville, Spain)
- Study Abroad Endowment Scholarship: Abigail Burke (Salzburg, Austria) and Noël Hagenburg (Limerick, Ireland)
Students interested in studying abroad during the fall 2018 semester or the 2018-2019 academic year should apply by Thursday, Feb. 15.
