From the busy streets of London to the ancient coastal town of Cadiz, nine Luckyday Scholars will take the opportunity to study abroad during the summer of 2020 in programs offered through the Office of Study Abroad at Southern Miss.
Three Luckyday Scholars receive funding for summer internship experiences through the Pathways Scholarship Program at Southern Miss with opportunities in Biloxi, MS, Washington, D.C., and New York, NY.
Internships can be a great way to gain valuable experience, but often they are unpaid and this can be a hinderance to students. The Pathways Program at Southern Miss provides the opportunity for students to seek funding for summer internships and gain valuable skills as well as having funds to support their needs.
All I knew was that I would be in a place that is known for their olives, and I will be attending school at the University of Jaén. … I started to wonder what I was getting myself into. Would I make friends? Would I feel homesick? …At one point the driver looked back at me and said, “Estamos aquí,” and I looked up and realized I made it to Jaén. This city meant nothing to me at that moment, but it is everything to me now.
