The Undergraduate Economics Program encourages students to consider enriching their undergraduate experience by studying abroad at some point during their undergraduate tenure. Studying abroad is widely defined as either study, work, internship, volunteer, and research opportunities abroad during your college career. Studying abroad provides students with not only more awareness of cultural literacies, but it further enhances their education by providing them with the opportunity to compare and contrast different economies and regimes.

Recall that as an undergraduate Economics student, you qualify for both Carnegie Mellon study abroad scholarships and study abroad scholarships available to Dietrich College students.
