Every year, more than 100 cadets pursue an international learning experience. By combining intellectual quest with firsthand exposure to different cultural traditions, cadets gain a global perspective and acquire important life skills—critical thinking, independence, flexibility, resilience, and the ability to interact and communicate across differences.
Cadets often describe their education abroad experiences as extremely rewarding and life-changing.
Cadets may study abroad after their first year at VMI, there are several scholarships available to help finance study abroad.
Eligible current cadets should go to MyVMI for more information about scholarships, required health insurance, and applying for study abroad.
