Study Abroad

We want our Stamps Scholars to explore the world and develop global fluency. Enrichment funds make studying abroad possible.  In fact, many Stamps Scholars travel abroad multiple times over the course of their four years.

Creating strong international ties is essential to excellence. Each year over 2,000 Illinois students study abroad in more than 300 programs and affiliations in more than 45 countries. Illinois is ranked 15th in the nation among all public and private institutions for number of students earning credit from study abroad.
