Africa and the Middle East

“Being an LSA Study Abroad Scholarship recipient allowed me to participate in a unique program that both enlightened and enriched my understanding of global scholarship and what it means to be a global citizen. As a self-proclaimed conservationist, I thought I understood the issues facing our world relatively well. This program offered me insight into environmental justice and the theory of ethical conservation from a human standpoint that I had never even considered. Having never traveled abroad before, I didn't know what conservation looked like internationally. I now have begun to understand the many complex ways that humanity, nature, and the government interact beyond the U.S. because I left Ann Arbor.  This program has helped me re-route my career and personal life goals, and I will be forever thankful.”
