Corbett Scholar Blog

Our Corbett Scholars share a lot of the experiences that many students do while abroad – but they also have unique and exciting ones that are all their own.

The Corbett British Columbia-Washington International Exchange Program is special because it asks participants to consider the Canada-U.S. relationship in everything they do. During their year abroad, they will encounter some of the nuances that define this close political and cultural relationship. They will learn about the specific features of the Pacific Northwest ecosystem, study the differences between Canadian and American policies on healthcare, education, climate and more, and will see in action the shared values and cultural touchstones that are unique to our region.

As they do these things, we have asked them to share with us. Keep up with their experiences by watching this news space!
