The Ohio State University is the recipient of a $500,000 grant from the U.S. Department of State to serve as the lead administrator of the national Passport to India initiative, which seeks to increase the number and diversity of American college and university students studying abroad and interning in India by 2020. The program was launched by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in 2011 to create a hub for U.S.-India higher education partnerships and to develop a stronger bond between the youth of both countries by increasing American student mobility.
