Help Our Students Learn about Study Abroad Opportunities at CSI

January 31, 2013 11:21 am

The College of Staten Island has a wide array of affordable study abroad programs that offer CSI credit and engage students in learning about the world on a first-hand basis. Most financial aid applies and significant scholarships are available. In 2012, CSI students won more than $109,000 in scholarships to study abroad. CSI students can receive grants for many programs, including semester awards of up to $8,000 from our program partner in Florence, Italy.

We all want more CSI students to study abroad and take advantage of these wonderful opportunities. Faculty and staff encouragement is key to motivating our students to take the initiative to study abroad. Classroom presentations with a study abroad advisor from the Center for International Service are an excellent way to get the word out.  

To schedule a class visit of ten to 15 minutes this spring, please send an email to Russell Davis, Study Abroad Advisor, at Please include your name, phone number(s), and the course title(s) and number(s), along with the scheduled time and place, approximate class size, and preferred date for the class visit. We will get back to you to confirm the details of the visit. If you have any questions, please call Russell at 718.982.2098. 

We invite you to check out student photos and testimonials at our CSI Study Abroad Blog.

Please also read on CSI Today about two CSI students who received the prestigious Gilman Scholarship and are currently exchange ambassadors this spring 2013 semester at the City University of Hong Kong.  

Thank you for your support.
