What is Fort Worth Abroad?
Fort Worth Abroad gives scholarships to college students from Fort Worth to study abroad and experience the proven benefits of international studies.
Facilitating these opportunities for the collegiate contingent from Fort Worth, Texas, will lead directly to students who capitalize on the opportunity to expand their horizons. These young, eager Fort Worthians eventually become young, eager professionals who, thanks to their expanded horizons, embody the characteristics of global citizens.
Young professionals who are global citizens benefit employers by nurturing a globally minded workforce, a practice of ever increasing importance.
While many Fort Worth students will leave their hometown to study elsewhere, and maybe even stay gone for a while; we all know it’s only a matter of time before the call of Fort Worth becomes too loud to ignore.
Last, but certainly not of least importance, having students representing Fort Worth in foreign countries increases exposure to our wonderful city, the “Most Texas” place to visit!
