Go-Abroad Opportunities

NOTE: Sorry, but a lot of these scholarships are aimed at U.S citizens. However, not all are. For example, some just require you to be a resident, or nothing at all. You need to click on the sites and read all eligibility. Mostly, just be proficient in English, and if you’re reading this I’m sure you are ^___^ – but if you need any help, let me know and comment below, or “ask me anything” on my tumblr which is linked at the bottom of my “About The Blogger” page!

*Adults out of university who are interested in travel opportunities please do not hesitate to drop and comment with your interests; chances are I know of a few ideas for ya!
