A MESSAGE FROM ALLAN E. GOODMAN, PRESIDENT & CEO, IIE
THE IMPORTANCE OF STUDY ABROAD
The world today is a very different place than it was in 1919, when the Institute of
International Education (IIE) was founded. With the rapid pace of globalization, it is more
important than ever that all students have access to study abroad opportunities.
Experiences afforded through study abroad provide American students with the skills
needed to live in today’s increasingly interconnected world. The language and cultural
skills they acquire along with their academic experience will have a profound effect on
their lives and careers. To this end, it is vital that students have access to resources that
encourage them to investigate global issues, learn different languages, and immerse
themselves in diverse cultures around the world.
IIE is working to increase the number and diversity of American students who go abroad
and to encourage study in places of growing strategic importance. Opportunities like
those offered by the Fulbright Program, Boren Scholarships and Fellowships, and the
Gilman International Scholarship Program translate into life-changing experiences for
tomorrow’s leaders. Such exchanges prepare students to be global citizens and increase
mutual understanding between the United States and the other countries of the world.
U.S. campuses also continue to expand their commitment to study abroad. The number
of American students receiving credit for study abroad now exceeds 273,000 annually,
according to the latest Open Doors Report on International Educational Exchange,
published by IIE with support from the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA) of
the U.S. Department of State.
The IIEPassport print and online directories are the premier study abroad resources
for students, advisers, and program providers, containing nearly 10,000 study abroad
programs worldwide. The Institute of International Education has produced the print
edition of IIEPassport for over 60 years.
The 2013 IIEPassport Study Abroad Directory includes content provided by the Forum
on Education Abroad on making the most of your study abroad experience. Find more
informative articles about study abroad, in addition to featured destinations and student
profiles, on www.iiepassport.org.
We hope this directory will provide students and advisers with a user-friendly resource
to better assist them in their search for study abroad programs and scholarships
opportunities that meet their specific needs. The Institute of International Education
provides study abroad resources to students and campuses with the goal of helping all
students to have the opportunity to gain international experience.
