Institute of International Education/Generation Study Abroad
Generation Study Abroad is a five-year initiative of the Institute of International Education (IIE) to mobilize resources and commitments with the goal of doubling the number of U.S. students studying abroad by the end of the decade. STA Travel will make a contribution to the IIE Study Abroad Fund for each trip booked through STA by students from Generation Study Abroad commitment partner institutions. In addition to contributing funding for scholarships to the IIE Study Abroad Fund, other commitments by STA Travel include providing sponsorship support and promotion of IIE’s Generation Study Abroad initiative, as well as added travel benefits for commitment partner institutions in order to make travel and study abroad more affordable for students.
In collaboration with GoAbroad.com, STA Travel is an exclusive partner of the The Roadshow, in which STA Travel ambassadors travel alongside GoAbroad.com staff on the Roadshow Bus, visiting university campuses across North America and bringing resources directly to students. STA Travel is also an exclusive co-sponsor of the GoAbroad Innovation Awards, which are presented during the GoAbroad Reception at the Annual NAFSA Conference & Expo, and recognize innovation within the field of international education. As part of this event, STA Travel “Start the Adventure Award” is awarded to an individual who has helped to make travel more accessible to youth and student travelers.
