Education Abroad wants to hear all about your international learning experience with our #myeapstory video contest. All you have to do is submit a short video of yourself during your education abroad program and you could go home with $500 to add your travel fund. Show us how you spent your education abroad experience and how it has changed your view of the world, your culture, or your future. It's as easy as 1-2-3!
