The Ohio State University is the recipient of a $500,000 grant from the U.S. Department of State to serve as the lead administrator of the national Passport to India initiative, which seeks to increase the number and diversity of American college and university students studying abroad and interning in India by 2020. The program was launched by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in 2011 to create a hub for U.S.-India higher education partnerships and to develop a stronger bond between the youth of both countries by increasing American student mobility.
Ohio State students interested in studying abroad for May session 2015 have opportunities to travel to Ecuador, England, France, Germany, Ghana, Honduras, India, Israel, Italy, Japan, Nicaragua or South Africa. A short-term spring break nursing program in Ethiopia and a higher education program in Brazil during March 2015 are also available opportunities. Apply for these programs before their November 1 deadline to start your international journey.
