The Forum on Education Abroad is pleased to accept nominations for the Award for Academic Achievement Abroad. Formerly called the Undergraduate Research Award, the award has been renamed to emphasize its intent of honoring undergraduate work in all academic disciplines, including the fine arts, humanities, social sciences, and STEM fields. The award continues to recognize the rigorous and significant academic projects that undergraduate students conduct as a part of education abroad programs. Award recipients will be invited to present their work at a plenary luncheon during The Forum’s 13th Annual Conference in Seattle, Washington. Nominations should highlight not only the high quality of the student’s academic achievement, but also the significance that the international context played in the student’s academic project and personal, academic, and career development. Nominations are now open and will be accepted until August 31, 2016. Winners will be announced during International Education Week in November.
