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.
