Each year we look forward to receiving videos from students located in every corner of the world and this year we are excited to offer five unique prizes. Students who wish to enter must be 18 or older and submit a video that is 4 minutes or less under these parameters:

  • If they’re currently an international student, tell us about a trip they want to take.
  • If they’re an aspiring international student, tell us about the school outside their home country they wish to attend.

The winners will be determined by our esteemed judging panel, and considered for one of these five prizes:

  • First Place Winner: $4,000
  • Second Place Winner: $500
  • Third Place Winner: $250
  • GoAbroad Choice Winner: $500

We're Headed Back to Guatemala

In March 2020 Envisage International Corporation (EIC) will be sending a group of team members to Guatemala for the third School the World (STW) Corporate Service Program. This committed team will work to build a school, raise funds to provide training to local teachers and parents, and help change lives through education.

Like in past years, EIC has committed to contributing half of each team members’ fundraising goal, leaving each team member $1,750 to raise through outreach. The 2020 team has kicked off their fundraising efforts and looks forward to keeping you updated on their journey. Meet the adventurous and excited team of 2020:

Gather Student Testimonials

One of the most common questions we receive from new and long-term partners alike is what to include in their InternationalStudent.com profile to make it stand out. One key way to draw interest that we recommend is to include good, old-fashioned word-of-mouth. Student testimonials are a great way to include a personal touch on your school’s profile. This will show potential students who visit your page a positive review from a current or former student. Helpful student testimonials often include why they chose your school, and what they like best about it. And of course, a photo adds a personal touch that helps it stand out even more.

If you don’t already have a student testimonial on your profile and would like to include one, let us know and we will help you get it added today.

 

Welcome New Clients

This month we’d like to welcome two new featured schools. Both with unique attributes to highlight, it is our absolute pleasure to assist these new schools in their recruiting efforts. Welcome aboard!
