More Info

Half of IUPUI students want to study abroad, but fewer than 10 percent ever do.

Many barriers stand between incoming freshmen and their ticket overseas: Last year alone, 70 students who had already been accepted to IUPUI study abroad programs withdrew due to financial limitations. With an average cost of $4,250, studying abroad is out of reach for many IUPUI students, especially for minority and first-generation students. One of the largest costs facing students is the cost of a plane ticket.

But it doesn’t have to be that way. In fact, in an increasingly global society, we can’t afford to let talented students who seek an international experience miss out.

That’s why we plan to ensure that those 70 students—and future generations of students just like them—have the support they need to explore the world. By supporting a study abroad scholarship fund that supports plane ticket costs at IUPUI, you can help our students gain the international experience necessary to thrive in a global society. Students who study abroad are more likely to:

  • Graduate, and to do so on time
  • Secure a job within a year of graduating —and at significantly higher salaries
  • Possess the leadership, adaptability, and communication skills in high demand with today’s employers

In other words, study abroad is worth the investment—of time by the student, and of financial support by IUPUI and our friends.

You are invited to celebrate the IUPUI Office of International Affairs’ 30 Anniversary in 2019 by becoming one of 30 donors to donate $30 or more to celebrate the legacy and impact of international programs at IUPUI.
