Aggies Go Global

NMSU students have gone global to 70 Countries on 6 Continents through our program since 2009!

The purpose of Aggies Go Global is to connect students with international experiences such as internships, research, conferences, and volunteering. AGG provides advising, training, and financial support to full-time NMSU students so they can have a transformative, international experience that will contribute to their educational, professional, and personal growth.

About the Program

How the Program Works

Make an appointment with Abby Nayra at anayra@nmsu.edu to talk about your vision for an international experience. Whether you have a set plan or no idea at all, AGG can help get you oriented. AGG also provides several group trips a year catering to specific student populations. See what is happening now under "Group Trips Currently Accepting Applications" on the sidebar.

Program Funding

AGG can provide assistance with travel costs for international experiences that are not for class credit, such as internships, research, conferences, or volunteering. Funding awards are based on what the student seeks to gain, personally and professionally, from their international experience, the work the student has put towards additional funding, and their plan to bring their experiences back to the NMSU community.

Eligibility for funding:
* Full-time NMSU student at time of application and travel
* If it is a conference, students must be presenting and if it is volunteering or internships, students must go for a minimum of 3-4 weeks
* The student must not gain class credit from the experience
* Priority is given to students who have not received AGG funding in the past and students who have never been abroad

Process to Apply for funding:
Email Abby Nayra at anayra@nmsu.edu to make an appointment and discuss ideas and options. When you are ready with a plan, she will provide you with the Aggies Go Global Funding Proposal to complete. Funding awards are based on the proposal and the funding available. Please contact Abby three (3) months before your travel dates.
