International Education Administrators Award - India

Dr. Keshia Abraham is an author, consultant, international educator, and scholar of the African Diaspora. The founder and president of The Abraham Consulting Agency, she is a recognized thought leader in international education, Africana studies, literature, and well-being. Keshia’s two Fulbright experiences, to India through the U.S. Scholar Program’s International Education Administrator Award as a faculty member from an HBCU, and an earlier Fulbright U.S. Student award to Jamaica and Trinidad & Tobago, developed her skills and ability to help thousands of people expand their sense of global citizenship. On the International Education Administrators program in India, she saw firsthand how valuable and necessary it is to help spread the word about the breadth and depth of the education HBCUs can provide for students worldwide. Previously, a Fulbright to Jamaica and Trinidad and Tobago led to her collecting and editing a volume of essays by fellow scholars and authors on the topic of what it means to be a Caribbean woman writer.  

An alum of Spelman College, she supports global learning as a scholar-practitioner and consultant with keen interests in HBCUs. Her most recent book, The Half Yet to Be Told: Study Abroad at HBCUs, celebrates Historically Black Colleges and Universities as innovators and practitioners of education abroad. She serves as a member of the National Academy of International Education.
