Latin American Student Ambassador Scholarships

We’re committed to increasing student interest in Latin America and will appeal to student influencers to show their peers how exciting and life-changing it can be to embrace Latin culture, people, history, business, fashion, environmental science, and dozens of other learning opportunities. We will offer 100 full semester scholarships to students from across the United States who want to live and learn in one of CIEE’s five exciting Latin American locations as they spread the word about their experience. 

The CIEE Latin American Student Ambassador Scholarships will cover the full cost of any CIEE semester program in Latin America during fall 2025 and spring 2026. Winners of this competitive award will act as ambassadors for their program, sharing their journey with peers through social media and other techniques of storytelling. They will receive a full semester program scholarship and a living stipend of $2,000.
