Internships and Research
About Danielle Dawn Varnes:
Experiential learning is my passion! I have traveled throughout Europe, Central America, Korea, Mexico, Canada, and the United States, worked in Japan, conducted research and volunteered in Zimbabwe, Ghana & Honduras. These experiences have been some of the most influential of my life. My official mission is to assist NAU students gain international hands-on experience in their field of study for academic credit. However, when people ask me what I do, I usually tell them that I help students have adventures abroad! Whatever you want to do, wherever you want to go I will help navigate you through the process. I will make sure you are supported and safe abroad, gain academic credit, score funding, participate in an experience that will advance your academic, professional and personal goals and possibly change your life!
Want to go abroad but think it is financial impossible for you? Well come to talk with me!
Another very important task of mine is to help all potential education abroad students gain access to funding for their intended programs. Every semester I host workshops, informational meetings, and one on one advising sessions for any student who is concerned with financing their program abroad. Last academic year Education Abroad helped students gain over $100,000 to fund their experiences abroad! I am committed to help every student, despite their financial situation participate in one of our quality programs. We have made going abroad a reality for hundreds of NAU students in financial need and we can make it happen for you!
