Congratulations to Generation Study Abroad Voices Video Contest Winners

Together with The New York Times in Education, IIE asked study abroad alumni to join Generation Study Abroad and share their voices. We wanted to know how study abroad gave them an edge, and what impact it had on their lives and the world, and how using New York Times content helped them. The winning videos are by Alejandro Alba and Christine O’Dea and were announced at the IIE Summit on Generation Study Abroad.

Share Your Study Abroad Story - Take IIE's Generation Study Abroad Video Challenge!

Has study abroad changed your life?  Then add your voice to Generation Study Abroad!


Submit your digital story today to IIE's Generation Study Abroad Voices Video Challenge and help show Americans how important study abroad is.


In a bold effort to double the number of U.S. students who study abroad by the end of the decade, the Institute of International Education, in partnership with The New York Times in Education, is seeking 1-3 minute digital submissions from study abroad returnees that demonstrate how study abroad gave them an edge, the impact it had on their life and the world, and how The New York Times content helped them navigate, enhance or make sense of their experience.


Two winning digital stories will be selected and highlighted in The New York Times in Education, IIE's Generation Study Abroad website, and across social media. Additionally, the winners will receive:


·               An I-Pad

·               $1,000 cash prize

·               A trip to Washington, D.C. to attend the IIE Summit on Generation Study Abroad on October 1- 2, 2015 as a "Generation Study Abroad Voice"


The submission deadline is July 15, 2015.  For additional information, eligibility requirements and submission guidelines please visit www.iie.org/studyabroadalumni
