While the importance of global business and knowledge grows, so does the cost of international travel, something that college students find especially daunting. University of South Florida President Judy Genshaft recognizes that difficulty, so she and her husband, Steven Greenbaum, are creating a one million dollar endowment for all USF students who want to study abroad. This week’s University Beat on WUSF 89.7 looks at the new “Passport Scholars Fund.”
