What We Do
- WHERE WE WORK
Welcome Message from Carol Jenkins
For more than 85 years, World Learning has equipped individuals and institutions to address the world’s most pressing problems. We believe that, working together with our partners, we can change this world for the better.
On my travels, I’ve had the opportunity to meet with many of those who have joined us in this mission. In Baghdad, we’ve trained more than 2,300 Iraqi youth who are already giving back at home. In London, our partners in the TAAP Initiative strongly believe that we are all responsible to practice inclusion. And in Vermont, our Experiment in International Living and School for International Training participants prove every day that they have the tools and the determination to change the world.
Please join us in our pursuit of a more peaceful and just world.
- Get Involved
The Capacity Building Program for U.S. Study Abroad seeks to increase the ability of U.S. higher education institutions (HEIs) to grow and diversify study abroad programs for U.S. students through a grant competition.
The program will also offer U.S. colleges and universities opportunities to participate in a series of study abroad capacity building activities, both virtual and in-person, to help create, expand, or diversify their study abroad programs.
For the grant competition, approximately 21 U.S. HEIs will be selected to receive grants of up to $35,000 each. The grants will support initiatives that help U.S. community colleges and universities design more inclusive and dynamic study abroad programs.
- Increase the number of U.S. undergraduate students studying or interning abroad for credit.
- Diversify American student mobility, both in terms of the students taking part and the destinations where they travel.
- Gain access to study abroad best practices through an in-person community and virtual library of resources.
Who can apply for this program?
The Capacity Building Program for U.S. Study Abroad is open to U.S. higher education institutions (two-year, four-year, public, private). Minority-serving institutions are encouraged to apply.
Please find more information about the program and application, including criteria and dates, on our website: http://www.studyabroadcapacitybuilding.org/
