Talk it Up!Talk it up and get $1,000 in airfare!

Did you just have a great time abroad?  Talk it up on campus!  Let other students know that they can and should study abroad.  Any education alumnus that recruits four students to participate in a NAU international exchange program will recieve $1,000 towards airfare, anywhere in the world. 

- The $1,000 is only redeemable within one year of being notified of the award and cannot be broken up among multiple flights.

- Four students must enroll in either regular international exchange or ISEP international exchange programs.  Exchanges allow students to pay regular NAU tuition and use their financial aid, thus are the most affordable way to study abroad.

- Exchange students must identify the alumnus that recruited them via the question "Did a study abroad alumnus recruit you to study abroad?  If so, who?"  This question will appear for all students during their application process.  Students that move beyond the application stage can no longer identify an alumnus.

- $1,000 awards are limited to 10 during the 2012-13 academic year; first-come. first-served.

NAU Global Ambassadors 

Make the most of your international experience by becoming an NAU Global Ambassador. Global Ambassadors are NAU students who have studied abroad for a summer, semester, or year, and who would like the opportunity to stay connected to their international experience. You can participate in e-advising, information sessions, classroom presentations, and pre-departure orientations and encourage others to "take the plunge" and study abroad!  At the same time, you will gain valuable communication skills and have a great volunteer experience to add to your resume.  Interested?  Contact Mr. Kyle Conway at
