The Diversity Abroad Award aims to provide financial support for under-represented students to study abroad and to expand the number of students studying abroad in non-traditional locations.  Global Education Center will award up to four $2500 scholarships in the fall 17 competition and three $2500 scholarships in the spring 18 competition to under-represented students and/or students studying in non-traditional locations.  Preference will be given to those students studying abroad for the first time.

Regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, economic background and ability, education abroad is for all UNH students, including those in under-represented majors, such as science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and health.  UNH also wants to diversify the countries and regions in which our students choose to have an international experience, encouraging travel to countries beyond Western Europe and Australia.
