International Educator - November/December 2017 - 45

For example, students who receive Pell Grants are
also eligible for the Benjamin A. Gilman International
Scholarship program, and other types of scholarships
may be available, Arellano says, but students might not
have the writing skills necessary to win a competitive
scholarship. To address that, senior international officers
can establish relationships with their school's writing
center, which can help a student craft an application.
SIOs can also work with the financial aid office to
see if financial aid funding can be disbursed earlier.
Often, financial aid is handed out after education abroad
programs in other countries have already begun, so students struggle to figure out how to pay for such things
as airplane tickets and meals during that time. Some
universities have set up multiple disbursement periods
so students heading out on study abroad programs can
get their funds sooner, Arellano says.

Wide-Ranging Benefits
Paul Schulmann, research manager at the nonprofit
World Education Services, says senior international
officers can also help attract a more diverse group of students by offering a wider range of education abroad locations. About half of study abroad opportunities are in
Europe, while according to research, black and Hispanic

students "are more likely to be interested in places where
they have cultural connections," Schulmann says.
To help close that gap, USF is working to bolster
its education abroad offerings in Central America and
South America. "Students get an authenticity of experience that they may not necessarily have when they are
in Europe, and study for a fraction of the cost," says
Brindley, the USF SIO. That's important at an institution
such as USF, where more than 40 percent of the student
body is eligible for Pell Grants.
Addressing the other major obstacle to broadening education abroad participation, Brindley has also
helped ensure that the university asks all undergraduate
programs to map out the logical time in students' college
careers where they could take place in study abroad. The
idea, he says, is to help students start planning for the
experience 18 months to two years in advance.
To make sure the initiative moves forward smoothly,
Brindley recently met with the university's Deans'
Council to make sure all are on board, and to ask them
to designate an associate dean, global. To get buy-in
across the university, it's important to act "very intentionally and very proactively," he says. n
