Meghan Schapman (Education Abroad) was named a recipient of a highly competitive international education fellowship that provides full funding to pursue the Professional Certification in Education Abroad. The fellowship, provided by the Forum on Education Abroad, will enable Schapman to participate in an accelerated residency training program focused on compliance standards for the field of education abroad.
The Forum on Education Abroad develops and distributes comprehensive standards of good practice, resources and training; advocates for education abroad and its value; and engages the field in critical dialogue to benefit students. Its 800-plus institutional members include U.S. colleges and universities, overseas institutions, consortia, agencies, organizations, and foundations that are committed to improving education abroad.
The five applicants selected as fellowship recipients were announced April 22 during the forum’s annual conference, which was held virtually this year.
