For many students, a study abroad experience is only possible with financial assistance. Each year CIEE awards scholarships and grants to students who plan to study overseas. Please read the eligibility criteria and the application procedures for each scholarship carefully.

Competition for the CIEE scholarships and grants is keen and the quality of the materials submitted is very important. The scholarship application procedure is entirely independent from the CIEE program application.

Students should discuss all financial aid planning with their campus financial aid and study abroad advisor. It is the applicant’s responsibility to ensure that their scholarship application is complete.

How do I apply?
A complete scholarship application contains the following items and must be submitted together:

  • A complete scholarship application and financial aid administrator form.
  • A 500-word, typed scholarship essay that includes:
    • The CIEE program, location, and term(s) for which you are applying
    • The names of every CIEE scholarship for which you are applying
    • Your objectives for your time overseas with CIEE
    • Details of your financial need and how the scholarship will assist you in meeting your individual goals
    • Describe any extenuating circumstances that may be relevant in the consideration of your scholarship application
  • Applicants should also review the eligibility requirements for each award as there may be additional factors specific to the award to include in your essay. Failure to include these additional requirements in your statement could jeopardize your scholarship application.

Scholarship applicants must also have a complete program application on file with CIEE by the scholarship deadlines in order to be considered. Students need only to submit one application, even if they are applying for more than one scholarship; however, only one scholarship will be awarded.
