Rinker Center for Global Affairs
Rinker Center for Global Affairs

The Rinker Center for Global Affairs is Ball State’s resource for international study and activities. Comprised of International Services, Academic Engagement and Global Initiatives, Study Abroad, and the Intensive English Institute, we support international students, scholars, and students studying abroad. 

This year we invite you to celebrate One Ball State Day with a gift to either (or both) of our two scholarship funds described below.

Alumni Fund for Study Abroad  

As we prepare for the resumption of global travel and study abroad, we aim to grow our Alumni Fund for Study Abroad. This fund provides former study abroad students a way to “pay it forward” to future Cardinals Abroad. Donations expand access to life-changing opportunities for future generations through study abroad scholarships. 

Hear Kate share the impact of scholarships on her study abroad experience:
 Rinker Center Emergency Fund 

Imagine traveling to a foreign country to study at a new university, far away from the place you call home, far away from family and friends. Then, an emergency occurs. Perhaps you become extremely ill, or a family member loses their job and can no longer support you. What would you do?

The Rinker Center Emergency Fund exists to provide help in exactly these types of situations. We have worked closely with international students in need for decades, and your donations help to support these students when they come to us for help.

By helping us build up our emergency fund, you allow us to provide care to current and future International Cardinals when their financial circumstances change unexpectedly, thousands of miles from home.

Don't forget to share!
