URI student, Katie Sause, will be participating in The Education Abroad Network’s (TEAN) Australian Environment, Wildlife, and Conservation program in Australia for FREE this summer!
The URI Office of International Education staff notified Katie on behalf of TEAN that she was one of two students from a pool of applicants from across the U.S. selected to receive the TEAN Full Ride Scholarship. The scholarship was introduced in 2015 to celebrate TEAN’s 20th year of facilitating education abroad experiences in the Asia Pacific region for U.S. college students. The award’s objective is to make academic study abroad more accessible to a broad range of students by covering tuition, program fees, housing, and airfare to participate on a TEAN academic program.
TEAN is a full-service international education provider specializing in immersive study and internship programs. As a major in Environment Life Sciences with a focus on Environmental and Natural Resource Economics, Katie will be enrolled in their Australian Environment, Wildlife, and Conservation program. She will visit some of Australia’s most renowned sites, including Gondwana, the Blue Mountains, the Great Barrier Reef, and the ancient Daintree Rainforest, while gaining hands-on experience in practical application of biological science and environmental management.
TEAN is a URI-affiliated program. For more information on their programs and scholarship opportunities, visit: teanabroad.org
