Cost should not be an obstacle to study abroad

Federal Pell Grant-eligible students can receive a GAIN Travel Grant up to $1,000 when they complete their CIEE Scholarships and Grants application by our published deadlines.

GAIN Travel Grant

Semester/Quarter Programs: Up to $1,000 toward airfare 
Summer and Single Block Programs: $500 toward airfare 

The Global Access Initiative (GAIN) Travel Grant provides funds for flights to and from their CIEE program for students who are eligible for federal Pell Grants. To apply

  1. Students upload their FAFSA Student Aid Report
  2. Submit a CIEE Scholarships and Grants application by October 15 (spring programs), or by April 1 (summer and fall programs). 

Students eligible for Pell aid are guaranteed if they meet the criteria above.

Note: CIEE GAIN Travel Grants are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Non-Pell students are still encouraged to apply and may be awarded if funds are still available after aforementioned deadlines. The GAIN grant is a credit with our partner travel agency for airfare only and has no cash value.
