We are hosting a Study Abroad Fair for Winter/Spring 2015 on Monday, September 29 from 2:00-5:00pm in the Oakland Dining Room, which is adjacent to the QCC Art Gallery. Representatives from other CUNY colleges will be in attendance to present their study abroad opportunities to QCC students. A flyer is available for download.
Study abroad programs offer students the opportunity for personal growth and global understanding. Students gain insights into other cultures, develop new perspectives, and learn to reflect on their own culture.
Working with universities worldwide, CUNY provides high quality, integrated winter and summer opportunities. Prospecitve applicants can consult a list of programs sorted by country, college, and program or can obtain general information about study abroad. To determine your eligiblity for these programs, please submit a completed inquiry form to our office.
To help fund their study abroad experiences, CUNY offers to all CUNY students a travel stipend covering up to 80% of program expenses through a grant known as Scholarships for International Resume-Building Opportunities for CUNY Students (SIROCS). Students can review our Study Abroad Scholarship Guide in addition to researching additional scholarship opportunities.
Queensborough also offers to its students a free one-week study abroad program that focuses on international issues in Salzburg, Austria.

Students are accepted to Study Abroad programs based on their GPA, at the time of application. However, a 2.0 GPA must be maintained prior to departure in order to participate in an overseas program.
