Congratulations to Carden Olson, the first ever Auggie to win a Fund for Education Abroad (FEA) scholarship! FEA scholarships are awarded to US students consistently underrepresented in study abroad including minority, LBGTQ+ and first-generation college students. Carden was one of just 135 winners nationally, chosen from a pool of over 2,300 applicants representing approximately 517 colleges and universities across the country. Carden will be studying abroad in Copenhagen, Denmark this summer on the DIS program (Danish Institute for Study Abroad).
The 2019-2020 FEA Scholars come from a variety of racial, ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds and represent 99 higher education institutions across the country. This year, 91% of the students are of minority backgrounds, and 90% are first-generation college students.
