CIEE created the Global Access Initiative (GAIN) to help students overcome the major barriers to studying abroad, namely costs and curriculum requirements. GAIN aids in the diversification of study abroad by providing overseas opportunities for students who are economically challenged, or from diverse backgrounds or underrepresented fields of study. Each year, CIEE provides $1 million in grants and scholarships to expand access for students to full-year, semester, and summer study abroad programs.
Deadline: Summer, fall, and academic year programs: April 1 (Of the year PRIOR to the start of the study abroad program), Winter, spring, and calendar year programs: November 1 (Of the year PRIOR to the start of the study abroad program).
8. The Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship Program
The Gilman Scholarship Program offers awards for undergraduate study abroad and was established by the International Academic Opportunity Act of 2000. This scholarship provides awards for U.S. undergraduate students who are receiving Federal Pell Grant funding at a two-year or four-year college or university to participate in study abroad programs worldwide.
The Gilman Scholarship Program is open to U.S. citizen undergraduate students who are planning to study abroad. The program aims to diversify the kinds of students who study abroad and the countries and regions where they go by supporting undergraduates who might otherwise not participate due to financial constraints.

Remember, there is no limit to the amount of financial aid you may receive. We encourage you to apply for as many scholarships and grants as you possibly can (the more funding, the better!).
