Thank you for your interest in Academic Travel Abroad. Please take a moment to watch our short corporate video below.


We are an educational travel provider for some of this country’s most prestigious organizations. We are a study abroad provider for undergraduates universities across the United States. We are a donor cultivation travel expert. We are a professional delegation organizer and association travel manager. We are an eco-certified company that donates time and money to philanthropic organizations around the world.

With an identity as unique and complex as ours, here’s what makes us stand out as a cohesive company: We love what we do. Whether we are sitting (or standing!) at our desks or out on the road, we travel to a myriad of countries every day—researching, exploring, connecting, and speaking languages from Italian and French to Arabic and Mandarin. Every one of our staff has a deeply-rooted respect for culture, for nature, for people. We have no patience for the cursory, the superficial. We want to go deep. We want to be immersed. We want to grasp the nuances. We want to change perspectives, deepen understanding, and engage communities.

We invite you to travel with us. On every one of our travel programs, travel deeper.
