While core programs, such as the Academic Program in Aix-en-Provence, Academic Year in Freiburg (AYF), WIP Universidad Complutense de Madrid, and UW in India Varanasi, continue to thrive after over 50 years of history, new and innovative program models are being developed to diversify program locations and to reach new student audiences. Program offerings have doubled over the past 10 years, with greater growth in programs outside of Western Europe. This past year, 16 programs were added, in 14 countries on 5 continents. Striving to develop programs which meet core academic requirements of UW students, and thereby reduce time to graduation, one new offering, UW Transnational Experiences of African Americans in Denmark, is one of our first programs that meets the (domestic) ethnic studies requirement.
In cooperation with the Office of Student Financial Aid, IAP also developed the Global Gateway Summer Programs in Botswana and India to be offered in summer 2019. These programs aim to promote access to study abroad for diverse populations of students and each program will fund 15 first and second year students with demonstrated financial need.
Program access continues to be a core goal, with $1,456,680 provided in scholarship funds, from both external and internal sources, towards IAP program participation in Fiscal Year 2018
IAPs integration of domestic programs over the past three years has led the United States to be the fifth most popular country destination this year for IAP students, as strategically designed domestic study away programs have proved to closely align with IAP values in meeting core student academic and professional development goals. Another new area of development are UW Study Abroad Summer Launch programs, where newly admitted UW students start their academic careers abroad. The first program in this series will be UW Rebels and Revolutions in Ireland starting in August of 2019 for newly admitted first-year students.
