Lasting Lessons: Following up with Recipients of the Forum's Undergraduate Research Award
Forum on Education Abroad
The annual Forum on Education Abroad Undergraduate Research Award showcases rigorous and significant undergraduate research that occurs as part of education abroad programs. Every year, the award recipients present their research at a plenary luncheon at the Forum's Annual Conference. The Forum granted the first Undergraduate Research Awards in 2004, and has since honored 23 students whose projects span a wide variety of academic disciplines, program lengths and locations, and project types. The impact of education abroad on these students, however, has continued long after their undergraduate research was concluded. The Forum recently contacted all of the past Undergraduate Research Award winners, and many of them shared how their lives have unfolded since the award and how they have been shaped by their experience abroad as an undergraduate. Their responses, which are insightful, amusing, and sometimes surprising, are presented in this paper.
