Syracuse Abroad to Host Annual Syracuse Abroad Week Sept. 13-17
Syracuse Abroad is back and ready to take on the world!
Syracuse Abroad is excited for the upcoming academic year and ready to continue supporting students both abroad and on campus. With over 350 students studying abroad this fall in over 20 locations, Syracuse Abroad is ready to assist students in planning their study abroad experience for spring 2022 and beyond.
This year, Syracuse Abroad Week will take place Sept. 13-17. Students, parents, partners and faculty are invited to take part in a variety of in-person and virtual events to learn more about study abroad opportunities and program offerings. Throughout the week, Syracuse Abroad staff will host 20 virtual information sessions that will discuss program options, financing study abroad and recommended programs for specific areas of study. To view all events and sessions, visit the schedule of Syracuse Abroad Week events.
“We are delighted to be resuming study abroad opportunities for our students, and Syracuse Abroad Week is a great way to make sure students have the information they need. Exciting and supported global learning opportunities are critical to helping Syracuse students develop the knowledge and skills they need to advance personal goals and to effect meaningful change in the world,” says Erika Wilkens, assistant provost and executive director of Syracuse Abroad. “While the pandemic has made it difficult for many students to take advantage of these opportunities, we are ready to help students make these dreams a reality.”
To begin an in-person quest to study abroad, visit Syracuse Abroad on the Quad on Wednesday, Sept. 15. Students, faculty and staff are invited to visit the Syracuse Abroad tent from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on the Shaw Quadrangle to learn about the many options for international study and explore more than 100 programs in 60 different countries.
Upon arriving at Syracuse Abroad on the Quad, students will receive a passport to travel throughout the tent. Students can speak with Syracuse Abroad Center program advisors, World Partner representatives, campus partners and Global Ambassadors to learn more about program offerings. Each page of the passport will direct students to someone who can answer a question, provide insight about the study abroad process or talk about their own experiences and adventures abroad. Completed passports with stamps from each table can be dropped off at check-in tables for a chance to win exclusive Syracuse Abroad swag items.
While at the event, learn more about:
- Our premiere Syracuse Abroad Center programs in Florence, London, Madrid, Strasbourg, Santiago and Exploring Central Europe, a featured fall-only program;
- World Partner programs with representatives from partner programs including DIS, CEA, SIT and more;
- Summer and short-term programs for Summer 2022;
- Financial assistance available for students studying abroad; and

Spring 2022 Abroad
Spring 2022 abroad will be a semester like no other. Study music performance in Strasbourg, France, or deepen your Spanish language skills in Santiago, Chile or Madrid, Spain. Each study abroad program has been designed to enrich students’ collegiate career, both personally and academically. Programs will be filled with dynamic coursework and engaging professors and have been paired with immersive educational field trips and extensive student support services.
Students can start planning for their Spring 2022 semester abroad and apply now. The application deadline is Oct. 1, and applications are reviewed on a rolling basis. For more information about spring programs, students can schedule an appointment with an international program advisor or make a general advising appointment to explore options. Advising appointments will take place virtually or at the Syracuse Abroad satellite office in Bird Library, SyracuseAbroad@Bird, located on the library’s lower level in Room 002.
As announced for Fall 2021 programs, the Division of Enrollment and the Student Experience has added $1.4 million in new funds that will be awarded to undergraduate students participating in semester programs during the 2021-22 academic year.
For Spring 2022 programs, these merit and need-based awards and grants will apply to both Syracuse Center and World Partner programs. These awards are particularly designed to assist students with financial need, as well as to recognize academic achievement. Students will also remain eligible for all other existing scholarships and grants.
