USD Student Awarded Diversity Abroad Scholarship

Diversity Abroad’s mission is to increase access, inclusion and diversity in study abroad and international education. One of the ways we do this is by working with higher education institutions and organizations — much like yours — to provide and promote study abroad scholarships to a diverse group of students.

We provided over $30,000 to 15 students this past semester, which will be used to fund spring, summer and fall 2016 study abroad participation. One of these students is from your institution, the University of San Diego! Qian Cen, who is studying international business, has been selected to receive the Semester at Sea Diversity Abroad Scholarship, which will provide $5,000 and the cost of the flight to go towards her semester-long, multi-national study abroad program aboard a ship.

We spoke to Qian as they prepare to depart for their journey.

"My scholarship from Study Abroad made my Semester at Sea voyage a dream come [true]!” Qian said. “I am forever thankful for the multitude of opportunities that this scholarship set out for me and I look forward to broadening my global perspective during my study abroad experience.”

Please help us in congratulating the Diversity Abroad Scholarship winners from this semester. You can follow along their journeys on the Diversity Abroad blog, where we will be profiling each of them over the course of the next semester. Or check them out via Twitter at @qianstephanie.
