Increase Your Study Abroad Resources: Become a CEA Academic Affiliate

We want assist your internationalization efforts and help your institution expand access to study abroad—that’s where the CEA Academic Affiliate program comes in.

We invite your institution to become a CEA Academic Affiliate and receive:

  • Greater access to and the democratization of study abroad through scholarship programming
  • A reaffirmation of fair, ethical and quality recruitment practices and collaboration
  • International support of academic programming and professional development to benefit both integrated curriculum and faculty development

CEA recognizes and values greater access to global education through meaningful and positive cultural immersion. We welcome affiliation with universities and colleges that share our values.

Student Benefits

CEA Academic Affiliation promotes study abroad among a greater demographic of students through:

Travel Grants

Students at affiliate schools receive Travel Grants as follows:

  • $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.


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.

What CEA Asks of Affiliates

As a CEA Academic Affiliate, we ask that your institution agree to support study abroad and formally collaborate on internationalization efforts through study abroad recruitment and operational practices.

Marketing Assistance
To this end, we ask our Academic Affiliates to:

  • Display Literature: Make CEA literature available to students, display CEA posters where appropriate on campus, and link to CEA's website
  • Transfer Credit: Assist students in transferring academic credit from courses taken through CEA study abroad programs
  • Process Financial Aid: Facilitate the transfer of financial aid for eligible students who wish to study abroad through CEA
  • Promote Visits: Help arrange for CEA representatives to meet with prospective students, including study abroad fairs, classroom/office visits, or tables on campus, when appropriate
  • Consider Additional Programming: Examine the opportunity for additional programming for returning and alumni study abroad students to ease re-entry to the home academic institution and encourage future study abroad advocacy

CEA looks forward to forging a meaningful relationship with our Academic Affiliates, as well as the beneficial intercultural awareness such a relationship will afford faculty and students.
