The Study Abroad Assistants are both a valuable asset to the OIE and a valuable resource to students; they are a shining representation of the personal value of learning in another part of the world.

Eligibility: Open to students who have participated in a SUNY study abroad program and have a cumulative GPA of 2.75 or above.
