With the most submissions and nominations to date (!), the GoAbroad team got right to work deciding on finalists for the Innovation Awards this year, reviewing, cross checking, and evaluating hundreds of high-quality applications.
With two new award categories—Innovation in Cultural Immersion (sponsored by Student Universe) and Innovative Programming in TEFL/Teach Abroad—we knew the competition would be tough.
But now…the competition is over! We were deeply impressed with the caliber of programs, initiatives, marketing campaigns, diversity enterprises, and overarching cultural immersion efforts found in every single nomination. However, ultimately only one finalist could come out on top in each category.
We announced our winners at the NAFSA Conference in Washington, D.C. on May 31, 2019, and now we’re ready to share our selections with you, too! Welcome to our new class of international education innovators in 2019. They completely smashed it! 👇👇👇
