For every 10% drop in the level of funding states provided to their public universities between 1996 and 2012, public research universities increased their enrollment of foreign students by 12% and the colleges that spend the most on their students boosted international enrollment by 17%, according to a working paper published this week by the National Bureau of Economic Research. But not all institutions are equally likely to use this approach — it’s those colleges that both have an international reputation and were hardest hit by state cuts that have turned to international students to fill the void, the study found.
