About CEA Scholarships

Studying abroad will change your life, improve your employability, and enhance your global competence... not to mention all of those amazing new friends, new classes, and new foods you'll discover when you take your education international. In fact, study abroad is so awesome that we think more students should experience it! That's why CEA commits more than $2.0 million each year to our financial and study abroad scholarship programs.

CEA remains devoted to increasing students' access to study abroad, while we learn and adapt to the new global landscape. For the 2021 year, we have limited our scholarship prompts to two categories, but remain committed to our vision of providing accessible international education.

Applying is easy. Here's how.

How To Apply

  1. Apply to a CEA Study Abroad Program (if you have not already)*
  2. Log in to your MyCEA account and submit your scholarship application and personal essay.
  3. Once we’ve received all of your materials, we’ll send a confirmation email to let you know your application is complete!

Keep in mind, to apply for a CEA Study Abroad Scholarship you do need to be going abroad on a CEA Study Abroad program (virtual programs are not eligible). Applicants may apply to only one Merit or Diversity based scholarship.

*CEA Custom & Faculty-Led Program students will receive more information about their MyCEA Account and application steps directly from CEA once their home university confirms participation in their program. Students may begin completing scholarship materials in the meantime.

"In the 21st century, "global education" is redundant -- if it isn't global, it isn't an education ... College graduates must possess the knowledge, skills, and habits of mind that will allow them to thrive in a global community."
Dr. George B. Forsythe
