“I really got to see how the design industry works. In addition to the courses at Lorenzo de‘ Medici, I did an internship in a boutique where people spoke Spanish, English, French, Italian and Korean. We were all working there together. It really changes your perspective. Every weekend, I went somewhere different—England, Spain. I even got to see the pope celebrate Easter Mass, which was an incredible experience.”

Eleven students, including Lisbeth Arias, received the inaugural Chancellors Study Abroad Scholarship in 2014. For 2015, Woodson is doubling the Chancellor’s Study Abroad Scholarships budget to $50,000, to support 20 to 25 students. See the full story at http://giving.ncsu.edu/.
The Chancellors Scholarship support has helped to make study abroad a reality for these students. However, the current scholarship levels are not enough to support all interested students.
