You may or may not know that many UCM students are first generation college students. Likewise, most students wanting to travel with us in December to the Land Down Under will be first time international travelers. It’s a terrific opportunity to expand worldly visions and connect with Queensland University of Technology School of Advertising, Marketing and Public Relations colleagues, as well as many other Australian professionals, through engaged learning experiences.
You Can Help!
This is where you come in. Because most UCM students work one, two or three jobs to put themselves through college, and because UCM can no longer help students study abroad as easily as it could in the past through study abroad scholarships, we’re appealing to alumni and friends to help scholarship students’ Australia trip.
Our traveling abroad opportunity will allow students to experience a new culture, train with professionals, and visit organizations that do business in other countries. These are priceless experiences. UCM students who’ve applied for the December 2018 study abroad Australia experience know this too. They just need financial support to get there.
It’s easy to support the students, many who’ve already been saving for the trip for more than a year. Just click and give here: https://www.ucmfoundation.org/donation-pages/donation-form-pr-travel. Simply choose “other” in the dropdown menu.
Any contribution amount counts. It all goes to a designated fund overseen by the UCM Alumni and Foundation Office. Funds received for this purpose will be evenly distributed across all Australia-bound UCM students.
We leave Dec. 9 and return Dec. 21. Students from all majors and all points in their college career can travel with us and learn through the two classes associated with the trip. December graduates can go to Australia with us and complete their UCM credits earned through the trip (and accompanying assignments) in time to graduate. The two classes relevant to the trip are PR 4600 PRomotion and Australia, and PR 4600 PRomotion and International Travel. The courses are structured to adapt to students’ areas of expertise.
