Program Description:
WORLD: The David & Leighan Rinker Center for International Learning Essay Contest

If you studied abroad between  Fall 2018 through Summer 2019, we welcome you to enter the third annual WORLD: The David and Leighan Rinker Center for International Learning Essay Contest. We are focusing on a theme we call “Hatters Abroad” so we want to read about you and your friends living, learning, and experiencing the world beyond our borders! Be sure to make them great because the winner will receive a $100 Amazon gift card!

The Essay Contest aims to capture the essence of study abroad by encouraging you to reflect and write creatively about the unique living and learning experiences that study abroad provides. 

By submitting your story, you help your fellow students and people in the community know, feel and appreciate what it is like to study abroad - the challenging things and the funny stories, moments that made you cringe and ones that changed your life.
