Meaningful, rigorous academics are pillar of education abroad programming that require critical thinking, analysis, and creativity. Pursuing these endeavors abroad creates unique challenges and opportunities for students to development a robust understanding of other cultures and societies—and a greater understanding of themselves, as well. That’s why The Forum on Education Abroad is excited to share the finalists for the 2022 Award for Academic Achievement Abroad!

How finalists are chosen
All nominations are read and scored by two faculty reviewers who have advanced training in the discipline for which the student is nominated and have experience teaching in the subject area, working with undergraduate students on academic projects in the discipline, and familiarity with education abroad opportunities.
Nominations are rated based on:
- level of scholarship,
- degree of innovation,
- leveraging of the resources distinctive to the program site,
- incorporation of knowledge of local culture and language in the project,
- faculty recommendation,
- and the nominee’s own description of how the experience transformed them.
Finalists are invited to share their experiences during The Forum’s Student Showcase, held as part of at The Forum’s 19th Annual Conference. The 2023 Annual Conference will take place from March 14-15 virtually and from March 22-24 in Seattle, Washington.
Congratulations to this year’s Award finalists!
