CIS Abroad prioritizes inclusion scholarships with NEW offerings

Like our partners, CISabroad believes international education is for all students – and access and inclusion scholarships can really help. It’s about where they’re going, not where they came from!

Because we’re unapologetically committed to increasing access to study and intern abroad programs for all students, we’ve just re-vamped our scholarship offerings! Did you know that 70% of all CISabroad participants receive scholarships or grants to study or intern abroad?

Scholarship + Grant Application Deadlines

Spring Semester Programs: OCTOBER 1

Summer Programs: MARCH 1

Fall Semester Programs: APRIL 7

NEW Access & Inclusion Scholarships:

*Academic Merit Scholarship – $250
*First-Generation Student Scholarship – up to $500
(Did you know two of CISabroad’s company leadership are First Gen?)

*Greek Life Scholarship – up to $500

NEW Grants:

*Passport Grant – $145

CISabroad’s grants are designed to help your students navigate some of the financial barriers on the front end of their study or intern abroad process that often keep them grounded: getting a passport and a flight!

Because these tasks are time sensitive, our grants function on a “first-come-first-serve” basis. There are limited spaces for each grant and we announce awards on a rolling basis, so make sure your students know to apply early. Here’s a list of our Program Application Deadlines.

Applying is Easy

  1. After students complete their CISabroad application, they can find scholarships and grants application forms in their online student portal. They’ll write a little bit about themselves, why they feel they’re a good candidate, and send it off for us to review.
  2. Our Scholarships & Grants Committee checks out applications from all eligible candidates. They’re a great team who reviews all applications through the lens of student need, academic merit, and written responses. They’ll hear from us via email by these dates.
  3. If a student receives one of our scholarships, they’ll work with our team on fun scholarship content deliverables (i.e. photos, videos, blogs, etc.) during their time abroad.

Please share CISabroad’s Scholarships and Grants page with your students to provide them more detailed information on eligibility and application requirements.

On the CIS Abroad blog, we share student-written content and information for students, advisors, other study abroad professionals, and families of students studying abroad. Check out our Facebook and Instagram for more from us and our students!
