Offered once each semester in September and in February, study abroad fairs are exceptional opportunities to communicate with knowledgeable faculty and staff about your potential global adventures. The fairs are designed to introduce students to the diverse programs available to them and include chances to earn some swag.

Attend the fall SDSU Study Abroad Fair Thursday, Sept. 14, in the Volstorff Ballroom Lounge, Student Union, 10 a.m.–3 p.m—here are three reasons why.

Networking

Study abroad fairs provide an exclusive venue for students to get a glimpse of the global opportunities available to them. The Study Abroad Office is available to introduce students to faculty-hosted, discipline-specific programs; representatives of various study abroad organizations; and SDSU Study Abroad Ambassadors eager to share their experiences.

Asking Questions

Study abroad fairs are fun and informal. Get your questions answered, learn where other faculty and students have traveled and take the first steps to prepare for your international journey.

“Students should attend the study abroad fair in order to see all the options they have and get every one of their questions answered on the spot! I think it's important to find the perfect place for you to study—one that meets all your wishes. The reps at the fair are really supportive in helping you find the best fit for you. It's also a good place to ask study abroad alumni questions you may have.”

 - Elin E., Study Abroad in Valencia, Spain

The fair is a great starting point for students to explore options, including internships abroad, SDSU faculty-led programs, service learning or leadership experiences and programs through partner study abroad organizations. 

Scholarships

International study abroad organizations often extend scholarship opportunities for students looking to spend a summer term, semester or year overseas. When these scholarships are available, registration to win will be held at the Study Abroad Fair. Additional funding opportunities may also be available through these partner organizations:
