USAC's Students Beyond Borders Fund

At the height of the Covid-19 Pandemic, USAC safely brought home our more than 1,500 students from their spring study abroad programs across the globe. There is no question – it was a heartbreaking situation. For students and faculty, students’ families, resident directors, central office staff, and of course – our alumni, supporters, and longtime friends of study abroad, like you.

But there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Despite the ongoing global pandemic, we are hearing positive changes from abroad, a “new normal” is forming in the communities in which we partner worldwide, DOS and CDC travel restriction levels are being downgraded, and we’re very proud to share – that in addition to launching our online courses and internships, USAC now has more than 400 students abroad.

Which is why now, more than ever, your financial support is needed. Finances continue to be the number one barrier to global education.

When we face challenges of any kind, USAC comes together as a family, and we put our heads together to find solutions and to move forward. We don’t give up. We are dedicated to our international education mission of helping students become global citizens. And today, students need your help.

100% of your donation today will directly support students in need.


Here's how we'll put your gift to work right away:

- Critical USAC Scholarships – 50%

- NEW Access & Equity Scholarship – 30%

- Student Emergency Fund – 20%

Covid-19 may have put the world on pause, but our mission is very much moving forward. We hope you will consider joining us in investing in USAC students through the Students Beyond Borders Fund.

As alumni, friends, and supporters, we know how important it is to keep your study abroad legacy alive – no matter when or where you studied abroad, or how you’re connected to the USAC family. YOU have helped contribute to and shape USAC's programs into what they are today. And in the face of this ongoing global pandemic, we hope you will join us in continuing to share the value and life-changing impact that an international education provides by considering a generous donation today.
