Scholarships

Scholarships are reviewed on a rolling basis until April 30 (for fall departures) and October 1 (for Spring departures).
 
In order to provide valuable opportunities to a greater number of students, CIEE offers a limited amount of up to 30% scholarships for our High School Abroad programs in all of our destinations: Australia, Brazil, Chile, China, Denmark, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Japan, New Zealand, Norway, Spain, and Sweden.
 
These scholarships are open to trimester, semester, and year abroad students. Award recipients are chosen based on merit. The process is highly competitive, and award amounts may vary. Scholarship funds are limited, and may run out, so we encourage you to apply early.
 
Scholarship applications are reviewed on a rolling basis and are reviewed alongside the completed program application. Once a student receives a scholarship, they have 10 days to accept the scholarship award and pay the confirmation deposit.

To apply, complete the scholarship application task in your online program application.

Due to the number of applications received, we are unable to consider late or incomplete applications. It is very important that all required scholarship application documents be received on or before the deadline.
