Everything You Need to Support Study Abroad
Studying abroad will increase your students’ language proficiency, intercultural competence, leadership skills, and self-confidence. You have an important role to play in encouraging students to apply for the study abroad programs and scholarships that will change their lives!
Below are resources you can leverage to get the word out at your school, but also support students before and after they study abroad so that they make the best of their experience and share its benefits with the entire school community.
Promote CIEE programs and scholarships
Too many students still assume that study abroad programs are just for college students, or that they are financially out of reach for their families. CIEE works hard to provide generous scholarships to thousands of students every year, bringing the world within reach. You play an important role in raising awareness of this incredible opportunity, and in encouraging your students to apply for our programs and scholarships. These tools will help you to get the word out, and support you in making sure students are aware of deadlines and program requirements.
Support Traveling Students
Before they go
You want your students to be as prepared as possible to make the most of their study abroad experience. These tools will help students set goals for their experience, manage expectations, think critically about what they would most like to take away from their time abroad, and research their destination and its culture.
When they return
Once students return from study abroad, they can be instrumental in changing the culture of your school to think more globally. One student’s experience can deepen classroom discussions, provide new perspectives, and encourage curiosity and compassion in other students. These resources will help you to design lessons around your students’ global experience, host storytelling workshops, and work with your students to ensure they can continue to leverage their learning experience long after they return home.
