4th Annual Bowl-a-thon raises over $10,000 to support scholarships!

On behalf of the co-chairs and the Fund for Education Abroad we want to say thank you all for your terrific support of the BASAA Scholarship. With your help, the 4th Annual BASAA Bowl-a-thon was an enormous success, raising over $10,000 to support two full semester scholarships for two deserving, area-students. This is great progress toward BASAA’s goal of five full semester scholarships–or $25,000–so stay tuned for more events and opportunities to raise awareness of the BASAA Scholarship initiative throughout the year.  You can find the updated scholarship flyer here.

Have you met the three BASAA scholars from 2015-2016?​ Brandon Morrissette of Plymouth State University is going to study for a full academic year in South Korea on an ISA program.Georgia Papaconstadinou of Bunker Hill Community College is going to study during the summer in Czech Replubic on a CIEE program. Sodany Soy  is going to study for a full academic year in South Korea on a ISEP program.

The BASAA community has given these three students the chance of a lifetime–all while bowling, networking, and celebrating increased access to study abroad. Many thanks to the bowlers, sponsors, and advocates of the BASAA scholarships. We couldn’t do it without you!

It’s not too late to make a gift of support to the BASAA Scholarship, securely on our donation page​ or by contacting FEA at (202) 349-7487.

Thank you, BASAA!

BASAA is excited to share with the community our letter of support for IIE’s Generation Study Abroad initiative.  As part of our support we hope to create a community engagement task force designed to utilize local international education professionals to engage and educate the K-12 Boston community on the benefits of an international experience.  This is where we need your help!  Please sign up below to express your interest in joining the Task Force.  We hope to announce an inaugural meeting sometime in June.   

Thank you!

The BASAA Spring Conference was once again a great success thanks to the energy and enthusiasm of the 120+ attendees and the generous support of our sponsors and host!  The day was filled with interesting presentations, thought provoking conversations and of course lots of networking.

A special thank you to our host, Simmons College and to Joe Stanley, Director of International Programs and Study Abroad, for helping to organize the day.

And of course, the conference would not be possible without the generous support of our sponsors!
