Resource Series 2: Resources for Students of Color Abroad

Whatever the specifics are for your case when preparing to study abroad, we want to be able to help you! The following list is by no means exhaustive, but we hope you find the resources useful.

  • Diversity Abroad has great resources for diverse students. Check out their tips for students of color abroad.
  • Transitions Abroad is a website that students submit their own stories and experiences to. The link will take you to an article specifically for African American students studying abroad, but the website may have helpful tips for other students of color, as well.
  • The PLATO Project says their list of resources is “useful in promoting study abroad participation among underrepresented students, addressing some of the issues and challenges ethnicity may play in their study abroad experience, and linking them to additional information, resources, and scholarships.”
    • They also work with this organization that supports all students that want to study abroad.
  • Diversity Issues in Study Abroad” by Brown University – This booklet is comprised of quotes from diverse students from Brown University after studying abroad. It may give students of all backgrounds some insight into what it is like being a diverse American student abroad.
  • Apply for the TU Institutional Diversity Study Abroad Scholarship.
  • This blog post written by one of our former Peer Advisors, Brianna James!
