The soft sound of a Spanish guitar slowly meanders its way through the cobble-stone plaza, enveloping you warmly as you sit at a quaint cafe table. You silently sip your creamy café con leche while watching a group of young Spanish niños play in the plaza's weathered fountain. The scent of blended spices radiating from the local spice market around the corner rides the light fall breeze all the way to your chair, heightening all of your senses and further strengthening your bond with the Spanish culture.
Spending fall in a place like this - sounds like a dream, huh? Well, while daydreaming is one way to go, the fact of the matter is that experiences like this really can happen and occur daily - through study abroad!
Unfortunately, it's a bit to late to enjoy the fall season abroad on one of our programs this year, but the good news here is that you now have the opportunity to reap all the benefits of applying early to a summer or fall 2014 program (trust us, they're pretty great!).
Why Apply Early?
Pay less for your program abroad and enjoy 2013 prices for your 2014 program.* Saving money on your program price will allow you to invest more in your experiences abroad whether they include travel, dining out at a nice restaurant, tickets to a soccer match and more.
*You only have until September 30 to qualify for this early bird pricing!
Applying for your 2014 program now gives you plenty of time to start searching and applying for study abroad scholarships. Outside of the opportunities that CEA offers students, take a look at the U.S. Department of Labor's free scholarship search tool for more ideas.
Depending on where you'd like to venture abroad next year, we have a plethora of courses available to you that are sure to help you achieve your study abroad goals. Dedicate some time reading through our course descriptions, and make a list of your top choices to discuss with your Site Specialist. This way, you'll avoid any last minute chaos by submitting your course preference form on time.
Is your family familiar with study abroad? If not - you now have time to introduce them to this life changing experience! Talk to your parents about study abroad and its benefits and invite them to join you as you prepare for this journey.
