IIE’s Generation Study Abroad Resource Hub
IIE has been supporting study abroad for over 100 years and striving to increase and diversify participation through Generation Study Abroad. IIE is committed to advancing study abroad in a way that is responsive to a changing environment, leveraging our global network, philanthropic efforts, and data-driven learning to support study abroad and international education.

Supporting First-Generation Students to Study Abroad
IIE's latest research publication, Supporting First-Generation Students to Study Abroad, is now available for viewing and download. This paper describes the landscape of study abroad programming designed for first-generation college students. It will then provide an overview of considerations for access to study abroad specific to first-generation students and relevant outcomes. Finally, it will present promising practices and examples from U.S. higher education institutions and study abroad programs to enhance pathways to access study abroad opportunities for first-generation students.
