Help Increase Access to Study Abroad

Our goal is simple: to make the life-changing benefits that come from studying and interning abroad accessible to as many students as possible. No one should be denied an abroad experience due to financial limitations. This is why we commit $5 million to our financial aid programs each year.

But we can't do this alone. With your gift today, join us in educating the next generation of global leaders. 100% of every donation goes directly to scholarships for students with financial need, helping them to pay for airfare, cultural excursions, academic tuition and more.
