International experiences have been important components of University of Minnesota education for more than fifty years. In 2010–2011 over 2,562 University of Minnesota students participated in programs abroad. We are very proud of our efforts to prepare global citizens. Please join us in our commitment to opening doors of the world for more students. You can help make the Learning Abroad experience possible with a gift to support scholarships.
Your support is essential to enable students to expand their view of the world as they study in their chosen academic fields. University of Minnesota students are determined to take advantage of our 250 programs in 70 countries. They take out sizable loans, work extra jobs, and stretch their resources as far as they can. Sometimes this isn't enough. In fact, students continue to cite financial constraints as the biggest barrier to studying abroad. We believe that more students should have an education abroad experience and hope you believe this too.
We invite you to give a gift of global proportions. Each dollar you give will go directly to send students on a life-changing international program. Check with your employer to see if your company has a matching-gift program. Consider making a gift today that will enable the tradition of international education to continue.
Thank you very much for your generous support!
