The University of South Carolina has been recognized by the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities as one of the nation’s top institutions in providing students from diverse backgrounds with global learning and study abroad opportunities.

The organization recognizes institutions which excel at aspects of internalization including diversity, leadership, research opportunities and assessment.

So far this academic year, USC has awarded more than 45 study abroad scholarships through its Global Carolina office to students including minorities, members of the LGBTQ community and students with limited financial resources. Last year, 1,871 students from USC’s Columbia campus participated in a study abroad opportunity, according to a news release.

“We take a layered approach to student transformation and make a concerted effort to include students who traditionally don’t believe international experiences are attainable to them,” USC Provost Joan Gabel said in the release. “We make those opportunities more accessible, both in terms of how we promote and design them, as well as the financial support we make available.”
