Pathway partnerships come with
wide variations. Here are two broad
models differing in terms of initial
investment and revenue-sharing.
Under the "Reimbursement Model,"
pathway provider invests and institution is reimbursed for expenses.
Under the "Joint Venture Model,"

that the scholarship program is diversifying both the kinds of students who study and
intern abroad and the countries and regions where they go to study.
The Gilman program, which is administered by the U.S. Department of State's Bureau
of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA), provides grants to help U.S. undergraduate
students of limited financial means participate in study and internship programs abroad.
According to the report, students who might never have studied abroad are
experiencing positive academic and career outcomes:
"From changed perspectives on the world and new interests in working on global
issues to focusing academic pursuits on international topics and deepening foreign
language skills, the Gilman Scholarship has enabled students of limited financial means
to develop the knowledge and competencies required to compete in a global economy."
The evaluation focused on collecting information from Gilman Scholars who had
studied abroad from the 2002-03 to 2009-10 academic years.
