ISA is looking for stellar storytellers to blog about their time abroad with ISA this fall. If sharing your study abroad experience through blog posts, photos and other media while receiving professional training and feedback appeals to you, consider applying to be an ISA Featured Blogger!
We’re particularly interested in hearing from students that currently blog or are interested in building their writing portfolios prior to graduation. Stories from Featured Bloggers will be published on the ISA Study Abroad Student Blog and through other social media channels throughout the fall.
