Simon Study Abroad

Expanding Minds and Opportunities

Did you know that less than 2 percent of U.S. college undergraduates study abroad each year?

There is growing concern about Americans’ lack of preparedness in engaging and communicating with the world today, but the Senator Paul Simon Study Abroad Program Act could change this. This bill in Congress would give more American college students access to the international education that is critical for them to thrive in today’s global economy. Not only will more global learning help American students succeed in their careers, but collectively, these international experiences will lead to a more engaged and welcoming United States and a more secure and peaceful world.
