Through the years, many governments around the globe have invested in sending postsecondary students abroad through providing scholarships for university-level study -- at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. Filling their country's immediate and future demands for professional and academic development through offering grants, and then maximizing on the students' educational experiences once they return home, is the major overarching objective of this activity. What motivates a government to invest in a study abroad exchange program on a large scale? Darla K. Deardorff (2014) explored "the why" for global educational mobility. She found that when research partnerships are established between foreign universities, positive impacts on key global societal problems are created and enhanced. Therefore, these investments not only have a positive impact in meeting the needs of a country, but can have a constructive global influence, as well.
