Here at Go Overseas, we love to make global education more accessible. It's part of our mission statement, and the foundation of why our company started.
This year, we had the opportunity to help provide 26 students with the chance to study abroad in Ireland. Working in partnership with Education in Ireland, we reviewed your essays, photos, and applications, and are excited to announce the winners.
Say hello to the lucky students who'll be headed to Ireland next year to continue their educational journey.
