Welcome to the Euro Challenge 2010 – an exciting educational

of the US – and its single currency, the euro. Now in its fifth year, the Euro Challenge is designed to appeal to students with a
background in global studies, economics, world history/geography or European studies.
"There is no other program that enables students to learn, first hand, about
international issues like the Euro Challenge."

"The academic experience was one that I will cherish. The insight into the affairs of the EU will
prove truly valuable to me in years to come."
– Molly Niedbala, student, Miami, FL
