About CAES Study Abroad

The College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences provides students with unique study abroad opportunities developed to offer life-changing international experiences. As the impact of our global economy grows, so does the need for employers to hire well-rounded citizens who can provide unique perspectives of the traditions, beliefs and values of other cultures.

Studying abroad will open your eyes and give you a fresh perspective on people and the world. When participating in one of our programs, you will go beyond the classroom as you experience life changing moments through hands-on learning. You will visit historic sites, meet new people, eat exotic foods and create lasting memories—all while taking courses that apply toward your degree.

UGA and CAES provide a multitude of study abroad options from two week adventures to semester exchange programs. Don’t let these opportunities pass you by!


Scholarship Opportunities

Study abroad programs have three main costs: program fee, tuition and fees, and airfare. Many students think that funding a study abroad trip is out of reach for them. However, CAES has multiple resources designated to aiding students in getting the funding needed to take advantage of these once-in-a-lifetime opportunities.

Additionally, if you are eligible, you can apply your HOPE scholarship toward tuition costs. Out-of-state students pay in-state tuition for study abroad.

It is never too early to start planning your study abroad adventure. For more information about our programs, contact the CAES study abroad coordinator, Amanda Stephens, and the Office of International Education. They can guide you through your options and give you the necessary information to have a successful experience. Also, be sure to contact your academic advisor about how participating in one of our programs can fulfill your degree requirements.
