This year I joined the Board of the Fund for Education Abroad (a more in depth post on FEA forthcoming!) and I wanted to post about their upcoming annual receiption in Washington, DC this Wednesday, October 16th. I had plans to attend but in the end my work schedule conflicted and I am forced to miss.
If your schedule permits I encourage you to attend this upcoming networking and fundraising event in support of FEA's common mission: to promote, support and increase opportunities for US college students to study abroad. On Wednesday, October 16 from 6:00-8:00pm, FEA will host its Fourth Annual FEA Reception at the Fathom Gallery on trendy 14th St NW in Washington, DC (1333 Fourteenth Street, NW).
FEA hopes you will join them for a night of networking, great speakers, drinks and delicious food. Tickets are $100. Young Professional tickets are $45 (age 30 and under). All proceeds will benefit FEA and our life-changing scholarships.
Hear more about the importance of increasing access to study abroad from our featured speakers: Maryland State Senator Jamie Raskin (D), District 20, Senate Majority Whip, who has been a strong supporter of international exchange and education, as well as, Hector Santiago, an FEA Scholarship recipient from 2012-2013.
The Fund for Education Abroad (FEA) is a 501(c)3 non-profit whose mission is to increase the number and diversity of US undergraduates studying abroad. FEA is an independent organization that gives semester and year-long scholarships for underrepresented students to attend the study abroad program of their choice.
