More than 70 percent of Americans spend some time abroad in the course of their studies, and nearly half of all American citizens travel abroad for work, according to a report by the Rice Study abroad program.
The Rice study abroad program is one of the largest and most influential in the country, and it is often the first stop in the U.S. for students looking for work abroad.
Rice’s president, David R. Greenfield, said the Rice program is an important tool to help improve the health of Americans overseas.
He said Rice’s focus on rice study overseas has been instrumental in encouraging students to pursue more international travel.
“I think that when students are looking for a specific job, they look for a particular position,” Greenfield said.
“They want to go to a place where they can work on something that really helps their career development.”
Rice is partnering with several companies to help develop the country’s first Rice study overseas program, including A&M International, which has a $1 billion investment to develop the program and an $11.5 million loan from the U,S.
Department of State.
M International will use the program to train more than 200 Rice students in three locations around the world.
They will then travel to the locations for three weeks of intensive training to prepare them for the next stage of the Rice study, which is called a post-acute care residency.
“The goal is to make sure that every Rice student who comes into the program is prepared to move to a community in a place with the right infrastructure and quality of life to support them in a new environment and to make them feel like they can really contribute to the community in which they’re going,” said Julie Glynn, a Rice associate dean and program manager.
Rice’s new Rice study-away program will focus on improving the lives of its students in rural and remote areas, Glynn said.
For instance, Rice’s program in the Philippines aims to provide health care to children at risk for health problems and help them recover.
“We see the benefits of Rice students coming to Rice to be educated in a way that is sustainable, that is economically sustainable and that can benefit the people of the Philippines,” Glynn added.
Ricard said Rice is committed to continuing its Rice study and its Rice-sponsored research programs abroad, including those in Africa and Asia.
“As Rice continues to work with a variety of universities and companies around the globe to develop and implement their Rice study opportunities, Rice will continue to look for opportunities to expand the Rice-led research opportunities to other places in the world, such as the United Kingdom, Brazil, Germany, India, Australia, the United Arab Emirates, India and Mexico,” Ricard said.
