Every student should reap the benefits of study abroad – to get a leg up on future employment and a fresh perspective that comes from encountering another culture. That’s why CIEE does more than any other international educational organization to make study abroad affordable.

Every year, we award more than $3 million in scholarships and grants for study abroad. Our comprehensive approach addresses three distinct areas to ensure we reach students of diverse academic, ethnic, and economic backgrounds:

Academic Excellence Scholarships – for students who excel in academic pursuits and are devoted to specialized areas of study

Access Grants and Scholarships – for students who have historically been unable to study abroad because of financial circumstances

Ambassador Grants – for motivated, high-achieving, students who are committed to capturing and sharing the many transformative benefits of international education after they return to campus.

Being accepted into the [CIEE] program was one of the happiest days of my life. My goal is to work for Sony or Nintendo, and having [studied] Japanese business in Japan is huge for my résumé.

There is no right or wrong way to study abroad. For some, it’s a semester exploring part of the world with their closest friends. For others, it’s a time to push their comfort zone and become immersed in a different culture. For all, it is a time of self-discovery and exploration.
