Take The First Steps


Complete the application for the program of your choice, and start the scholarship application by pressing the “Apply for a Scholarship” button. Finish three short essay questions and attach a copy of your high school transcript and your family’s most recent 1040 form, to submit your full application by February 17.

Recipient Notification

You will be notified via email on March 6.


Scholarship recipients must accept or decline awards within 10 days of notification.

Scholarship Terms

Scholarship awards are applied directly to your account to offset CIEE program tuition for a single session.

Scholarship awards cannot be applied to domestic or international airfare, passport or visa fees, or personal spending money.

Students who received a Global Navigator Scholarship for the summer of 2016 are not eligible to apply.

Anticipating Costs

It is a smart idea to check out airfares prior to applying, and to anticipate that as a factor in your overall costs when budgeting. For instance, flying to Mexico or the Dominican Republic can be half the price of flying to Spain!
