  • $500 per student, per year programs
  • $250 per student, per semester or trimester program
  • $100 per student, per session, for short-term and summer programs
*CEA may prohibit the use of Travel Grants in conjunction with Affiliate Volume Discounts, Custom Programs and/or other Non-Affiliate direct student promotions.

Scholarships


CEA allocates scholarship money specifically to students enrolled at Academic Affiliates. Scholarship types and amounts may vary by term.

University Benefits


Comprehensive Network


Utilize CEA’s strong and robust networks to advance your internationalization efforts. We invite our Academic Affiliates to experience the academic and cultural opportunities available through our network. CEA schedules two Familiarization Trips each academic year; preference is given to Academic Affiliates in the nomination process.

Global Competence Development for Faculty and Staff


CEA’s Faculty and Staff Tuition Grant program represents an innovative professional development opportunity. Each year, we award a grant to each Academic Affiliate, allowing a faculty or professional staff member to attend a two- or four-week program at one of our CEA Study Centers. This opportunity facilitates the university representative’s global expertise development while providing familiarity with CEA staff, facilities, and academic programming. We encourage our Academic Affiliates to nominate participants from all corners of campus, including student affairs, financial aid, and the office of the registrar/bursar, as well as academic units. The Tuition Grant program is especially well-suited to faculty and staff with limited prior international experience. We ask the Affiliate institution to cover the cost of airfare, hotel accommodation, and incidentals.

Collaborative Programming


In order to support our Academic Affiliates’ international initiatives, we offer up to $1,500 toward one coach airline ticket for the first Custom Program developed jointly with CEA.

Marketing Assistance


To help promote study abroad on your campus, CEA offers up to $500 annually in marketing materials to be jointly developed by the Academic Affiliate's study abroad office and CEA; materials must bear the CEA logo. We offer marketing consultation and help identifying opportunities to increase awareness of the value of international education on campus. We are available to collaborate on a customized annual marketing program, which may include broadcast and print advertising, e-marketing, print collateral, promotions, events, and customized websites.
