The College also ranks above all other Virginia institutions public and private listed in the report.

More than 40 percent of William & Mary students study abroad in their undergraduate careers, last year in 41 countries. The Reves Center provides more than $150,000 in study abroad scholarships each year.The Open Doors report is published annually by the IIE with funding from the U.S. Department of State's Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs.
