Student Spotlight:

Samuel Urban, Veteran,
Education/History/Anthropology major

“As a veteran student utilizing the GI Bill, my program was mostly paid for, and the scholarship for Armed Forces veterans as well as other UConn scholarships paid for a large portion of my flight and my housing. If you think you can’t afford to study abroad, speak to an education abroad advisor, because there is likely more money to help you than you think. I only had to pay for my food, as well as a fraction of my travel and living costs.”
