Where can you go? Study Abroad helps you spread your wings further than you might have imagined possible. The impact of an international experience is great, positive, and long-lasting. The impact can be felt on your personal growth in self-understanding, independence, communication, and appreciation of your world and the situation of others.

In addition to personal growth, international engagement prepares you for your future career by giving you experience and knowledge above and beyond your area of study. Your workplace or future study is sure to be diverse, an international education prepares you for the internationalized society and economy by exposing you to language and cultural understandings.

Finally, your time in CASNR courses is enhanced by exposure to expanding horizons. You may earn transfer credits for your study. Experiences to positively impact every student at UNL.

Scholarships through CASNR can be applied for below and are accepted on a rolling basis at any point before your program departs, and can be accessed here. Begin with applying for the university-wide scholarships, which have an earlier deadline (Feb 1, 2022 for this year’s summer travel), and then apply for the CASNR-specific ones below, which you are only eligible for if you do not receive one from the former source.
