STAR is a transnational forum of scholars advancing global social mobility through innovative research and progressive advocacy efforts. Our mission is to create, and share published scholarly research focused on international education by facilitating academic exchange across the globe.  We envision a humane world through promotion and exchange of knowledge across borders.

STAR Scholars are emerging leaders in scholarship and research, often practitioners in the field of international education with growing experience in the field. STAR Scholars serve for three years as ambassadors for our society, enjoying a platform to highlight their professional profile and an opportunity to collaborate with other scholars around the world.
