An Invitation…To Become a Study Missouri Supporter
If you seek stature in international business, global trade or student-centered commerce, we invite you to become a Study Missouri supporter.
Study Missouri, a consortium of public and private colleges and universities throughout the state, was established in 2009 to encourage international education. The consortium promotes Missouri as a destination for international students, and encourages and assists Missouri college and university students to study abroad.
International Education is Growing in Missouri
Missouri ranks 12th in the nation in the number of international students enrolled in the state’s colleges and universities. During the 2014-15 academic year, more than 21,000 international students attended college in Missouri, contributing $615 million to the state’s economy. These students came to Missouri from around the globe to enjoy top academic programs, low cost of living, a welcoming atmosphere, spacious campuses and a safe environment. The number of international students studying in Missouri grew by more than 19 percent last year.
Each year, approximately 5,000 Missouri students participate in study abroad programs through their colleges or universities. The popularity of study abroad programs continues to rise as the benefits of international education become known.
International education enhances understanding of other cultures, promotes the exchange of knowledge and skills, and prepares students to actively participate in the global economy.
Becoming a Study Missouri supporter provides you and your company with many opportunities to reach local and international clients through:
- Visibility on the Study Missouri website – www.StudyMissouri.net
- Visibility to tens of thousands of international and domestic students
- Visibility to international education professionals around the world
Visibility at special events, such as
- International Education Day at the Missouri Capitol
- The International Educators Conference (NAFSA)
- Social events for international students and their advisers
- Professional development seminars for international education staff
- Poster sessions and panel discussions by Missouri students who have studied abroad
Study Missouri is a non-profit 501(c)3 corporation, so your contributions are tax deductible.
