AmeriSpan: Why Affiliate?

Background

The Institute for International Education reports a 145% increase in US students studying abroad for credit compared with 10 years ago.  Offering a wide selection of study abroad programs is becoming a necessity for many institutions but resources for expanding study abroad options are limited. So these institutions are left with the challenge of how to increase their study abroad offerings and expertise without breaking their budgets. 

There are a number of large study abroad organizations including AmeriSpan that already offer a wide variety of programs and possess the expertise.  Many students are already participating on these programs because these programs meet the student's needs better than what their home institutions offer.  By affiliating with one or more of these study abroad organizations, home institutions benefit in the following ways:
  • Expanded Offerings When your institution signs an affiliate agreement, your students have a much broader choice of programs.  Students may find a program that better meets their individual needs including: overall cost, destination, course emphasis, and program length. 
  • Budget Help Most Affiliate Programs give marketing grants and/or contributions to the institution's study abroad office.  This money can be used to market study abroad offerings, help financially disadvantaged students, facilitate faculty site visits and many other ways. 
  • Site Visits/Faculty Training Increasing an institution's firsthand knowledge of study abroad programs will strengthen the overall success of their study abroad efforts.  Affiliate programs offer faculty discounts (sometimes free) site visits and/or participation in study abroad programs.
  • Increased Scholarships Affiliate Programs offer special scholarships to students enrolled at the affiliated institutions. 
  • Lower Prices Because study abroad organizations are realizing economies of scale by sending thousands of students annually, their programs are usually priced lower than similar programs offered by individual institutions.
