Bold Solutions to Boost Participation
There’s no silver bullet. To increase the number of U.S. students studying abroad, we need a comprehensive set of solutions that target the three Cs – cost, culture, and curriculum – in several ways, including the following:
$20 million in scholarships and grants by 2020
Free passports for 10,000 students
Large-scale, short-term custom programs in partnership with colleges and universities
An annual $20,000 faculty grant to support innovative approaches to custom study-abroad programs

Specialized high school study-abroad programs that support early introduction to global education
Strategies that overcome cultural barriers to study abroad, such as the CIEE “I Believe” campaign
25 study-abroad scholarships in partnership with Mobility International USA and the National Clearinghouse on Disability and Exchange

Goodman spoke at a special luncheon, where attendees broke into working groups and came up with ideas on how to reduce obstacles in each area. Which solutions can you put to work on your campus?
