We recognize that being a lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender student abroad can present unique challenges and opportunities in exploring a new culture. The National Association for Study Abroad has a website rich with information for LGBTQ students who are thinking of studying abroad.
Can I study abroad through UAlbany if I am lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgendered?
Yes! Speak with one of the advisors in the office. There may be some country-specific issues related to housing options and paperwork required for international travel that you should expect early on.
Still to come - On the study abroad website, which is a seperate entity from the albany.edu/studyabroad website we discussed having a LGBTQ Concerns link under Cultural Issues that would lead back to the albany.edu/studyabroad page and the https://www.albany.edu/lgbt/
UAlbany LGBTQ Study Abroad Scholarships may also be available check out the Office of Study Abroad & Exchanges website for more info.
