How Many U.S. Students Study Abroad?
International experience is one of the most important components of a 21st century education - yet less than 10% of U.S. undergraduate students study abroad.
Every student should have the opportunity to study abroad
Our goal is to have 600,000 U.S. students studying abroad in credit and non-credit programs by the end of the decade.
Generation Study Abroad engages educators at all levels and stakeholders in the public and private sectors to encourage purposeful, innovative action to get more U.S. students to undertake an international experience. Putting IIE's resources behind this campaign highlights the commitment to increasing study abroad that has been so much a part of the Institute's mission for our first 95 years.
