As global travel gets cleared for takeoff once again, O’Neill students will once again be able to pack their bags to expand their education overseas.
Applications for O’Neill’s summer 2022 study abroad programs opened December 1 and are due January 21, 2022. O’Neill IUPUI students can choose from 10 programs for their summer study abroad destinations, ranging from locations in the Caribbean to Europe to Africa.
The school has even opened a new destination to IUPUI students. For the first time, they will be able to travel to Portugal to learn about sustainable development practices. It’s one of 10 global programs that can help students enhance their education and experience in their chosen field.
Jason Sprinkle, an O’Neill alum who earned his MPA in Nonprofit Management in 2021, spent his study abroad in Denmark, delving into the nonprofit landscape on a global scale.
“Learning while immersed in another culture is not an experience many get to enjoy, and I did not take the opportunity lightly,” Sprinkle said.
“In order for our students to remain competitive in today’s workforce and the nonprofit world as a whole, they must have some international experience,” he added. “These experiences improve students’ practical and theoretical skills, expand their understanding of the world, and set them up for further success in their chosen career.”
Sprinkle also received a scholarship to help offset some of the costs of the trip. Students can apply for a scholarship at this link. Read more about each program below or or visit https://oneill.iupui.edu/student-life/study-abroad/index.html to learn more.
