Abroad Blog Grant

Overview

IPE Program Travelers

The #UmichEnginAbroad Tumblr Blog seeks dynamic, engaged students to serve as official IPE Bloggers during their IPE international experiences. IPE Bloggers will post their stories and photos from their IPE internaitonal programs, both cataloging their own experiences and those of other Michigan Engineers on their program.

The #UmichEnginAbroad Tumblr Blog loves dynamic images and accounts of Michigan Engineers engaging in local culture, collaborating with local students, exploring engineering innovations in the field, lab, or classroom, and of course, learning and growing through their experiences. The ideal IPE Blogger would help to showcase experiences like these, telling their own story, and ultimately, the stories of Michigan Engineers abroad.

The #UmichEnginAbroad Tumblr Blog in turn will help to share these stories with CoE and the University as a whole, contributing to the visibility of Michigan Engineers abroad, and demonstrating the value of international experiences to the Michigan community.
