CEHS is serious about making opportunities available for students to experience education abroad. To help you get out there, the Ready/Set/Go seminar will prepare you and provide a $1,000 scholarship to support your CEHS global experience.

The dates for the program are February 8th, to March 8th, every Tuesday from 4:30-6pm, on East Campus, location TBD.
The enrollment open period for this application is October 22nd 8am – November 3rd, 5pm

Ready/Set/Go session

To receive the scholarship, all you have to do is attend the Ready/Set/Go seminar. It’s a six-week class that helps you prepare and plan for travel abroad. It also gets you plugged into additional resources to make your trip a successful and rewarding experience.

Ready/Set/Go is held in both the fall and spring semester, but availability is limited. Please contact Global Exchange Coordinator Jim Benes, for details at jbenes@unl.edu (402-472-8397)
