We believe international education is for everyone.

American Councils believes that diversity enriches our world and cultivates respect for the communities in which we work. We promote diversity and equal opportunity, both within our own ranks and among those we serve. We support diversity of opinion, and recognize that it creates a stronger, more effective organization.

We are proud to partner with several organizations in the field of education abroad that promote diversity and inclusion, including:

  • Diversity Abroad
  • The Forum on Education Abroad
  • NAFSA 
  • Generation Study Abroad
  • Mobility International USA

We will continue to advance our efforts to recruit and support diverse participants on the programs we administer. Our study abroad programs award scholarships to traditionally underrepresented students, and we also offer assistance funds to support the incidental costs of studying abroad, such as applying for a passport and pre-program medical appointments.
