Global Studies Photo Contest



Global Studies Photo Contest

Each year the Office of Global Studies sponsors an annual Photo Contest for St. Kate's students to show us where they have been!

Photos taken abroad are often used in promotional materials for the Office of Global Studies, the St. Kate's website, and in the Scan alumni magazine.

To be eligible, students need to have studied abroad within the 12 months preceding the contest. For example, for the 2015 contest students will need to have studied abroad between Winter/Spring semester 2014 and J-term 2015.

For questions regarding the 2015 Photo Contest, please e-mail the Office of Global Studies at with the subject line: Attention Peer Advisor.
