Simone Dreher just finished her first international semester at Philipps-Universität Marburg from Louisiana State and will start the second half of her full year in January. With a chronic mobility accessibility issue, she has faced challenges in her life.
Her time abroad was challenging too, but she says, “I’m very glad I came. It’s been incredible. My studies tie directly to my interest in anthropology and health policy”
As an ISEP Community Scholarship winner, she knows first-hand the difference that an ISEP Scholarship can make, “It’s unbelievable how big of a difference studying abroad can make in your life. And you get the opportunity to study abroad, you can see differences in accessibility. That’s an opportunity I wouldn’t have had to see that. Giving the opportunity for students to see the future is very important. ISEP’s scholarships are a major part of that opportunity.”
