Ask your Lawmakers to Restore, Grow, and Diversify U.S. Study Abroad Participation
Study abroad provides students the global skills, knowledge, and experiences necessary to compete in today’s global workforce. Despite these proven benefits, only 10 percent of U.S. college students study abroad before they graduate. Furthermore, the pandemic has dramatically impacted study abroad, limiting students’ access to the associated benefits and resulting in significant financial losses for institutions. Urge your lawmakers' support for the Senator Paul Simon Study Abroad Program Act and for new and increased federal funding for study abroad.
