Increasing Diversity in Study Abroad
Live, Learn, Intern Abroad Scholarships
In 2017 EUSA launched the Live, Learn, Intern Abroad Scholarships for underrepresented students or those with demonstrated financial need. EUSA will award up to $2,000 to a select set of students who are participating in established EUSA partner programs.
Generation Study Abroad
Generation Study Abroad is a five-year program launched by the Institute of International Education (IIE) in 2014 to mobilize resources and commitments with the goal of doubling the number of U.S. students studying abroad to 600,000 by the end of the decade.
As a Generation Study Abroad Commitment Partner, our commitments reflect our ongoing efforts to increase opportunities for students underrepresented in study abroad by:
- assisting one public university partner who wishes to expand their internship options by offering free placement services for five underrepresented students per year for the next five years;
- developing media content targeted to study abroad offices, career centers, students and parents, promoting the meaningful impact of international experience on graduate employability;
- contributing annually and supporting the fundraising efforts of study abroad scholarship organizations such as the Fund for Education Abroad, Boston Area Study Abroad Association (BASAA), and PDX Abroad;
- aiming to grow our student enrollment by 50% over the five-year life span of the initiative.
