Partner Organizations and Schools

The Experiment in International Living has been a truly valuable partner of the SEO Scholars program in helping prepare our students for life in college and beyond.  We feel confident that when our Scholars are on an EIL program, they are immersed in meaningful and insightful cultural experiences that push them to fully experience the world abroad.  This is no vacation; it is a journey of self-discovery.  Our Scholars return wiser, tougher, and more confident in their abilities to overcome the barriers that stand in the way of college graduation and success in the professional world.
