175 Students Receive Funding for Study Abroad Programs 

The Division of Continuing and Global Education (CGE) has awarded International Travel Grants to 175 Fresno State students who are studying abroad during the summer of 2013. The students will receive $1,000 each to reimburse travel expenses associated with their programs. 

Last summer, 120 students participated in study abroad programs and 106 received grants, funded by Instructionally Related Activity (IRA) fees.  The 65% increase in awards this year was possible because of additional funds generated by CGE's passport acceptance facility.
