Alcohol, College Students, Foreign Countries, and Your Money - (Seattle, WA) $41,380
Breaking news!--college students studying abroad tend to drink more alcoholic beverages. Thanks to research funded by the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, taxpayers now know "study-abroad students double the amount they drink while away." The project found "students under the age of 21 nearly tripled their drinking habits." The over-$41,380 federally backed study also revealed "students who traveled to Australia, New Zealand and European countries drank more heavily than those who studied in Asian, African, Latin American and Middle Eastern countries." However, in the end researchers could not answer whether the level of drinking was risky or not.
