Student Diplomat Essay Competition


Do you have a compelling story to tell about your study abroad experience, or know someone else who does?

NAFSA and Abroad View Magazine will be teaming up this year to offer the Student Diplomat Video Competition, which will replace the essay competition offered in previous years. Now, students will have the chance to tell their story online and in person.

The competition will launch in late September. Stay tuned for more details!

The Student Diplomat Essay Competition will be open to all U.S. citizens and legal permanent residents who have had an undergraduate study abroad experience, whether they are currently studying abroad through an accredited college or university or recently did so.
