Equal Access Run

OIE is running to support the Fund for Education Abroad September 7 - 12, 2020. FEA scholarships promote greater access to study abroad programs by supporting Students of Color and underrepresented students. The Equal Access Run is free to sign up for, but we do hope that you'll consider a small donation to FEA so that these scholarships can continue. 

Join our team (SUNY Fredonia OIE) and get your miles in!
