Preparing a successful undergraduate study abroad application for major scholarships, Boren or Gilman in particular, requires a serious work and takes a great deal of time. Students need to explain how a Russian study abroad program at “Learn Russian in the European Union” in Daugavpils, Latvia
Now that I’ve been out of self-isolation for a few weeks now, I’ve had a lot of time to explore Daugavpils and get familiar with the place for the start of my year abroad. Despite being the second biggest city in Latvia, it is very compact and easily walkable.
We continue introducing to our readers the students enrolled in “Learn Russian in the European Union” academic study abroad programs at Daugavpils University. This time, we did an interview with Conor and Philip – US students and Boren Scholars.
