December 5, 2022: Cost-effective Study Abroad Programs to tell your parents about.

Study Abroad Airplane graphic

What are our most cost-effective study abroad programs?

Semester locations:

When looking at semester estimated costs, compare them to UMD’s cost of attendance (which ranges from $13,600–$16,300). These cost estimates are based on the spring semester 2023 estimates. They include estimated program fees, study abroad fees, international insurance, room and board, travel documents, round-trip airfare, books and foreign university fees, local transport, and personal expenses. Note: these estimates are subject to change.

Top 5 cost-effective Summer locations

Study abroad independently for 1–3 months. (These are based on 2022 estimates)

 

View all summer programs >

 

*Note: you do not pay both UMD and the institution abroad, you only pay a study abroad fee in lieu of UMD tuition; then the tuition to the institution abroad. So some of these estimated costs are less than what you pay to attend UMD (including airfare)!

2023 UMD Faculty-led Program Costs

Study abroad with faculty and a group of UMD students for 2–6 weeks. (These are cost estimates only and are subject to change.)

 

View ALL our study abroad program costs >

 

There’s money out there.

 

Our office awards over $80,000 in scholarships annually. View our webpage for info about our study abroad scholarship, diversity in study abroad scholarship, and a host of other opportunities!

 

Financial aid can also apply. Learn more here.

October 31, 2022 - When Google Doesn't Work, Get Research Help at the Library

librarian working with student

You’re already probably pretty good at searching for information through Google or DuckDuckGo, but there are all kinds of situations when reaching out to a librarian may be helpful. Suppose you’re not sure where to get started with a research project or how to define the scope of your research for a class assignment, talking through a search strategy can make the research process less daunting and stress-inducing.
If your usual process of searching for information isn’t working or you’re hitting a wall, librarians can guide you to a new resource that you didn’t know existed. Maybe you’re familiar with some key databases but you’re not finding the information you expected, librarians can provide search tips and techniques that are unique to search tools like databases or the library catalog. If you find yourself wandering the stacks trying to find a particular book, librarians can help you to read the call number to find it on the shelf so you can focus on using the information. When you’re feeling overwhelmed or frustrated with trying to find the information you need for a class, librarians are great resources to reach out to because we’re experts in finding information.

September 6, 2022: 2nd Annual Volunteer Fair

volunteer fair details specificed in article

We'd love to share about an upcoming University Honors Student Association (UHSA) event - the 2nd Annual UMD Volunteer Fair. In the past, local community organizations have had trouble accessing UMD's student population due to the compound-like structure of campus. UHSA wanted to change that, so last year we hosted UMD's first Volunteer Fair. We had 15+ organizations attend, and the results were overwhelmingly positive. In a survey administered to groups after the event, responses indicated that the fair was beneficial to both students and organizations!

This year, we have over 30 local groups registered to attend the 2nd Annual UMD Volunteer Fair! The fair will run from 10am to 2pm on Thursday, September 8th, on the Kirby Terrace, and we would love to see you there. UMD is full of amazing students, leaders, researchers, activists, and so much more; it's time that we push our students to take those talents and create positive change in our communities.
