Generation Study Abroad Access Grant

Proposals will be accepted until Friday, April 13

CIEE created the Generation Study Abroad Access Grant to recognize innovative programs that increase access to international education by students in groups traditionally underrepresented in study abroad.

The grant program is part of CIEE’s Generation Study Abroad™ pledge to help break through the barriers of cost, curriculum, and culture and double the number of students - from all majors, backgrounds, and socioeconomic levels – who study abroad.

Faculty and Study Abroad Advisors are strongly encouraged to apply for the $20,000 grant.

Generation Study Abroad Access Grant FAQs

How can the Grant be used?

Click to Open

The funds from the CIEE Generation Study Abroad Access Grant can be used for anything that will help with student costs. So for example, scholarships for the program fee itself, passport and visa costs, money to help with purchasing flights... The funds are not intended for the faculty to use for him/herself or for indirect program costs.

I already have a program planned, am I eligible?

In order to be eligible for the grant faculty and/or the Study Abroad Office would need to partner with CIEE on the program. The CIEE Faculty-Led and Custom program department offers assistance with all of the onsite logistics, site visits, guest lectures, company visits, co-curricular activities, etc. If you have your own connections and/or specific requests we would of course work to accommodate those, but this grant is for a partnership program with CIEE so it will be required for CIEE to assist fully with the program.
