Yes, there are a lot of opportunities to study abroad as a graduate student! I was unable to study
abroad as an undergrad, so I was in this exact position as a beginning graduate student. A lot of
programs available to you are based on teaching or language acquisition (sometimes related to
business/ management like UCLA's programs in Shanghai and Lima), but if you are looking for other
international experience specific to your research or career interests, find out which
universities have particularly big graduate programs in your field. Then look on their websites;
these universities will probably have study abroad programs that incorporate international
language and culture with topics relevant to your discipline. For education, I think NYU's
Steinhardt School has some really interesting programs.
Plus, as a graduate student, you have access to several funding resources (e.g. FLAS, Fulbright
Grant, Rhodes Scholarship, Rotary Foundation Ambassadorial Scholarships, international center &
non-profit scholarships, disseration grants and fellowships) that are responsive to graduate
students who may be more academically focused than undergraduates.
