Resources for Study AbroadBegin Your Journey
The U.S. Department of State is committed to supporting the next generation of diverse American leaders to gain the knowledge and skills they need to succeed in a globalizing world.
As Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said, “American Students studying abroad play a key role as citizen ambassadors. They tell the American story and demonstrate American values and ideals to the entire world. Nothing can replace the people-to-people connections that happen when our young people study abroad. Let’s work together to provide more such opportunities to Americans of all backgrounds.”
Young Americans studying abroad experience the world and begin to form networks that will enhance their prospects in the world’s marketplace and their potential as global problem-solvers. They build understanding as unofficial ambassadors for our country, defining American values and debunking stereotypes.
