CIEE Global Access Initiative (GAIN)
The CIEE Global Access Initiative (GAIN), starting in Summer 2012, was created to help overcome the main barriers to study abroad, namely, challenges of cost and curriculum requirements. GAIN will aide in diversifying study abroad by providing opportunities for students who are economically challenged, from diverse backgrounds, or underrepresented fields of study.
CIEE is providing one million dollars each year through grants and scholarships to expand access for students for full-year, semester, and summer study abroad programs. GAIN will also provide grants and scholarships to students who are selected as awardees by the highly respected Benjamin A. Gilman and David L. Boren Scholarship programs.
