The Journey to National Study Abroad Day: From Concept to Celebration

The story of National Study Abroad Day began with a chance encounter and a shared vision. Erin Kunert and Jessica Mulvihill, while serving on a panel for the IIE Generation Study Abroad scholarship, sparked a conversation that would lead to something extraordinary. “If there’s a National Pickle Day, there has to be a National Study Abroad Day,” Jessica remarked. This idea, met with Erin’s enthusiasm, planted the seed for what would become a significant annual event in the world of international education
This annual event, held on the last Monday in February, became a canvas for universities, colleges, and organizations to creatively celebrate and promote the benefits of studying abroad. The mission of Study Abroad Day is clear: to highlight the profound impact and benefits of study abroad experiences. It builds upon the foundations laid by International Education Week (IEW) in November, aiming to showcase on a grand scale the transformative power of engaging with different cultures, places, and people.


Celebrating five years of National Study Abroad Day is more than just an anniversary; it’s a reaffirmation of the power of global learning. We at Via TRM are excited to continue supporting and promoting these enriching experiences, fostering a deeper understanding and appreciation of our diverse world.
