Brandon W. from Denison University in Ohio ended up spending a semester studying abroad in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic last spring thanks to these three steps.
“The CIEE Gilman Grant did two great things for me: one it encouraged me to apply for the Benjamin A. Gilman Scholarship, which helped fund my education abroad. The money from that grant was CRUCIAL to me having money once I got abroad. I realized paying for my program wasn’t enough, I also needed to budget money for on-site.”
A simple application can earn you up to $9,500 in grants to participate in one of CIEE’s 200 programs in 50+ countries. Don’t miss this opportunity for support that can make your dreams of a life-changing adventure abroad a reality.
