TROY, Ala. (AP) - Troy University wants to give more students a chance to study abroad.

The Dothan Eagle reports (https://bit.ly/1e3Jofy ) that the school has joined the Institute for International Education’s “Generation Study Abroad” initiative.

About 2 percent of Troy’s students born in the U.S. go on study abroad programs. University officials would like to see that rise to 9 percent by the end of the decade.

The university has created the Chancellor’s Award for Global Competitiveness that will provide $750 in scholarships for qualifying Troy students who study abroad.

The newspaper says Troy’s partnership with the Institute for International Education could also produce greater awards for students studying abroad.
