Boeing Study Abroad Scholarship

The BBA International Programs office is excited to have offered new scholarship opportunities solely for McCombs undergraduate students studying abroad on Spring 2014 BBA Exchange programs. The Boeing Study Abroad Scholarships were awarded to eight students studying abroad in various locations. Each applicant was chosen based on summaries written in response to questions such as ‘In what ways will you be a good ambassador before, during, and after your study abroad experience?’ We send an enormous thank you to Boeing for making long term study abroad a reality for more McCombs students.

"Receiving this scholarship is very exciting because I will now be able to see much of Europe's museums, churches, and other historical gems. I have never left the United States, so my European experience will now be all the more adventurous! Because of Boeing's generosity, I will also be able to travel to Orleans, France to see where my family came from!"

"I am incredibly grateful for Boeing's generosity to grant me a study abroad scholarship. Without this scholarship, it would be much more difficult for me to take full advantage of a once in a lifetime opportunity to explore and study abroad in Hong Kong."
