IFSA-Butler Nominated Twice for GoAbroad Innovation Awards

IFSA-Butler is delighted to be named a finalist in the 2015 GoAbroad Innovation Awards. IFSA-Butler was nominated in the categories of Innovation in Diversity and Innovative New Program-Study Abroad. 

Our Innovation in Diversity nomination is for our UpFront program, which bills certain out-of-pocket study abroad expenses to a student's account so that the student can pay the costs via our monthly payment plan, or with financial aid. This innovative service helps participants and their parents overcome the burden of excessive expenses before study abroad.

Our Innovative New Program nomination is for the Summer Nursing and Pre-Health Program in Coleraine, Northern Ireland. This program, developed in partnership with the University of Kentucky, offers two core courses that are ideal for nursing, pre-health, biology or other health science majors. Students from any U.S. or Canadian university are welcome to enroll in this program.

Winners will be announced at the 2015 NAFSA conference in Boston.
